Site Name: Copping Knoll Barrow

Site Location: West Oxfordshire
Related Achive: Manning

Half a mile south of Glympton on the west side of the road to Wootton (by Woodstock) is a low flat mound (175 feet in circumference and 3 feet high in 1907). A site visit in 1983 found the barrow much reduced to 90 feet diameter. The barrow is ploughed right up to its edges. Nothing is known of the name 'Copping Knoll'.
