A bowl barrow no longer extant as an earthwork. Excavated by Mortimer in 1878, he found that the mound had been dug into on a previous occasion, probably in 1849 by the Yorkshire Antiquarian Club. Mortimer found an undisturbed grave near the centre and beneath the mound and containing a crouched inhumation with a small Food Vessel. Part of another pottery vessel was found near the skull as were a flint knife and two flint flakes, plus an object made from an animal rib bone. Also inthis area, and apparently cut into the side and bottom of the grave, was a shallow bowl-shaped pit containing animal bones and charcoal, as well as sherds from a "dish-shaped vase". Some potsherds were also present in the mound.
