This site actually falls outside the time limits of the collection as it's a Romano British barrow cemetery and was probably constructed in the late 1st Century AD or early 2nd Century. It does however hark back to a tradition of earthen barrow construction and is one of the best preserved cemeteries in the UK. It consists of four large conical barrows, the largest being over 15m high with a modern staircase up one side, and supposedly three lower barrows adjacent to the West. The low barrows are hardly visible and were either never very big or have been ploughed out over the centuries. The most Northerly of the large barrows is separated from the main group by a disused railway line and appears to be very overgrown and on private property. Excavations took place in the 1830s and numerous grave goods were discovered, but sadly none of these remain after being destroyed in a house fire at Easton Lodge in 1847. If you plan to visit take a large scale OS map as it's not very well signposted and appears to be a well kept local secret!
