Five bowl barrows near Over

History of five bowl barrows near Over

Listed building on Heritage at Threat register

The monument includes five bowl barrows situated 790m north west of Chain House, on the east bank of the River Great Ouse, part of the Over round barrow cemetery. The mounds survive as prominent earthworks, while the encircling ditches, from which earth was dug in the construction of the mounds, have become infilled, but survive as buried features.
