Notes

A bowl barrow situated on lowland heath close to the Dorset coast. The barrow mound is 1 metre high and 21 metres across. Surrounding the mound is a ditch from which material was quarried during the construction of the monument. This has become partly infilled over the years but can still be seen as a slight depression 0.25 metres deep and 3 metres wide. Scheduled.
