Percy Manning's records mention Two Barrows at Wood Farm, Kiddington

One barrow is situated north of Wood Farm, in a grass field, not ploughed. The remains of a large dead tree trunk can be seen in the centre. The other barrow is situated in the woods, north west of the farm. This barrow is covered in scrub and trees, and hollow in the middle, possibly caused by the large felled, or fallen, tree which lies next to its banks.
