A bowl barrow lying on the crest of St Catherine's Down 680 metres north of the lighthouse on St Catherine's Hill. The barrow includes a mound 17 metres in diameter and 1.5 metres high on the summit of which is a depression, possibly the result of unrecorded antiquarian excavation. Surrounding the mound is a quarry ditch. This is no longer visible on the surface but will survive as a buried feature 2 metres wide. Scheduled.
