Two bowl barrows situated on the southern edge of a plateau known as South Heath, overlooking the Frome valley to the south. The barrows were recorded by LV Grinsell (1959) and the Royal Commission of the Historical Monuments of England (1970), when each barrow had a mound 9 metres in diameter and between approximately 0.9 metres to 1.2 metres in height. The eastern barrow mound has been reduced, but survives as a stony patch approximately 0.3 metres high. The two mounds are surrounded by infilled quarry ditches, surviving as buried features. Scheduled.
