Notes

A Bronze Age bowl barrow situated on a hilltop location which originally overlooked the valley of a tributary to the River Carey. The barrow survives as a circular mound which has a more prominent profile on its southern and eastern sides. It measures 17.5 metres in diameter and is 0.7 metres high. The surrounding ditch, from which material was derived to construct the mound, is preserved as a 2 metre wide buried feature. Scheduled.
