Two bowl barrows situated on a ridge overlooking the Bere Valley to the north east and Piddle Valley to the south west. The barrows are 500 metres to the north west of the broadly contemporary round barrow cemetery on Blackhill. The barrows each have a mound composed of sand, earth and turf, with maximum dimensions of between 14 to 15 metres in diameter and circa 1.1 to 1.25 metres in height. Surrounding each mound is a ditch from which material was quarried during the construction of the monument. The ditches have become infilled over the years, but each will survive as a buried feature 1.5 metres wide.
