A Bronze Age bowl barrow situated 900 metres north of the Seven Barrows round barrow cemetery. It is one of a number which are outliers to the main cemetery on the spur of Sparsholt Down. The barrow mound measures 30 metres in diameter and stands up to 1.7 metres high. Its summit has a slight depression believed to represent the site of an antiquarian investigation of the barrow, although no details are known. Originally, the mound was surrounded by a quarry ditch which has become infilled over the years and now survives as a buried feature 2.5 metres wide. A further two barrows have been recorded in this locality but no surface evidence of them now remains. Scheduled.
