Neolithic short long barrow and a Bronze Age bowl barrow on Battery Hill, listed by Grinsell as Idmiston 26 and Idmiston 31. Field investigations in 1970 found the short long barrow (Idmiston 26) surviving as an earthwork with a maximum height of 1.5 metres and shallow but well defined ditches. The bowl barrow was 1 metre high.
