Bronze Age bowl barrow surviving as an earthwork. Excavation in 1849 and 1927 revealed cremation burial with urn and pygmy cup and inhumation with vessel and iron ring supposed Anglo-Saxon burial
Carrington's excavation of 2nd June 1849 recorded in Bateman's "Ten Years Diggings..." as being in a field called Nettles (Net Lows?). The field containing this barrow is shown on a Tithe Map of 1845 as Blore Netlow so the name Net Low would appear to apply to this barrow.
