A Bronze Age bell barrow listed by Grinsell as Bishop's Cannings 67, excavated by Thurnam in the mid-19th century. He reported finding a few burnt bones, some potsherds and one or two ox teeth. The barrow is now visible as a cropmark on air photographs. It is visible as a ring ditch with a diameter of 18m. A dark circular mark in the centre of the barrow could be the site of a burial pit but may have been caused by Thurnham's excavation. Scheduled.
