Full description

May 2005. Norfolk NMP.
A ring ditch is visible as a cropmark on aerial photographs (S1) to (S3), centred at TG 4940 1613. Although its identification as a Bronze Age round barrow is not certain, this seems the most likely interpretation. Together with four further ring ditches to its south (NHER 27352 to NHER 27353), it makes up part of a nucleated barrow cemetery (NHER 27350).

The ring ditch is virtually circular in plan and measures 17.5m in diameter. A central internal pit probably represents a burial.
S. Tremlett (NMP), 26 May 2005.
