An oval-shaped mound on Stonehill Down, extant as an earthwork, has been variously described as an oval barrow, a long barrow and a bell barrow. RCHME field investigation for the Dorset Inventory described it as being 96 feet long, 64 feet wide and up to 9 feet high, surrounded by a sloping berm and then a ditch, the latter 1 foot deep and up to 20 feet wide. The ditch is interrupted by a causeway at each end. Since then it has suffered some plough damage but is still substantially extant. Classification remains a problem. Scheduled.
