Full description

1590. Barrow?
(S1) shows knoll here marked as Brents Hills.
Illustration is identical to Catte Hill (NHER 12585) and Howe Hill (NHER 1790) both of which are supposed to be barrows. The name presumably derives from 'burnt hills', so is this a barrow?
E. Rose (NAU) 22 November 1985.
