Round barrow, nr Stocking Drove Farm, Sutton

History of Round barrow in Sutton

Listed building on heritage at risk register

The round barrow 690m SSW of Stocking Drove Farm is well-preserved, having been protected by overlying deposits of peat and clay, and is the best surviving example of a larger round barrow cemetery now largely destroyed by quarrying and arable cultivation. It appears to be unexcavated and is likely to contain a wealth of archaeological evidence relating to activity on the site, the manner and duration of use of the barrow, its construction, and the landscape in which it was set.
