Two Bronze Age bwowl barrows situated on a knoll overlooking Frome Valley to the north. The larger barrow is 18m in diameter and 1.5m high with a ditch visible as a 2m wide depression to the north and south, elsware the ditch will survive as a buried feature. The upper part of the mound has a number of trenches cut into it of military origin. This barrow is scheduled. The other barrow is scrub covered.
