A pair of fairly well-preserved bowl barrows, standing some 30 metres apart, located to the north of Barkhale Camp Neolithic causewayed enclosure (SU 91 SE 31). Both barrows were surveyed by RCHME in 1995 along with the causewayed enclosure. The western barrow is 20 metres in diameter and 1.3 metres high; the eastern barrow, just 20 metres from the enclosure, is 23 metres in diameter and 1.5 metres high. Neither appears to have been surrounded by a ditch. Both appear to feature depressions on the top of the mound, presumably resulting from antiquarian excavation, although no records exist. The western barrow was trenched by V Seton-Williams in 1959. The base of a possible round-based vessel was found beneath the mound, but the pottery recovered was generally undiagnostic.
