A bowl barrow situated on a small knoll overlooking the Piddle Valley to the north. The barrow, which was recorded by the Royal Commission of the Historical Monuments of England in 1970, has a mound composed of earth, sand and turf, with maximum dimensions of 12 metres in diameter and 0.6 metres in height. The mound is surrounded by a ditch from which material was quarried during the construction of the monument. The ditch has become infilled over the years, but will survive as a buried feature 1.5 metres wide. Scheduled.
