The monument includes one of a pair of bowl barrows set on high ground 3km
west of the River Wey. The barrow mound is 24m in diameter and stands to a
height of 2m. A ditch, from which material was quarried during construction
of the monument, surrounds the mound. This is no longer visible at ground
level but survives as a buried feature c.3m wide. A concrete plinth
supporting a bench on the east side of the barrow mound is excluded from the
scheduling as are the manhole covers and any drains not visible on the surface
as well as the road surface and pavement south of the barrow mound. The
ground beneath the concrete plinth, the road and the pavement is included
within the scheduling.

The site of the monument is shown on the attached map extract.
It includes a 2 metre boundary around the archaeological features,
considered to be essential for the monument's support and preservation.

Reasons for Scheduling

Bowl barrows, the most numerous form of round barrow, are funerary monuments
dating from the Late Neolithic period to the Late Bronze Age, with most
examples belonging to the period 2400-1500 BC. They were constructed as
earthen or rubble mounds, sometimes ditched, which covered single or multiple
burials. They occur either in isolation or grouped as cemeteries and often
acted as a focus for burials in later periods. Often superficially similar,
although differing widely in size, they exhibit regional variations in form
and a diversity of burial practices. There are over 10,000 surviving bowl
barrows recorded nationally (many more have already been destroyed), occurring
across most of lowland Britain. Often occupying prominent locations, they are
a major historic element in the modern landscape and their considerable
variation of form and longevity as a monument type provide important
information on the diversity of beliefs and social organisations amongst early
prehistoric communities. They are particularly representative of their period
and a substantial proportion of surviving examples are considered worthy of

There is no evidence for formal excavation of the Hogmoor Lodge barrow
mound and it survives well, with considerable potential for the
recovery of archaeological remains.
