A bowl barrow extant as an earthwork mound 27 metres in diameter and 0.5 metres high. The mound was dug into in 1878 by Mortimer, who found traces of three burials. He suggested that the interments had been covered with large flints. One burial was contained within a shallow pit dug into the original ground surface. It comprised an adult male crouched inhumation. Another grave 5 feet to the east contained another crouched adult male inhumation, near the feet of which were the legs and lower part of a third adult inhumation.
