Three bowl barrows located on the top of a hill in Avon Heath Country Park. The easternmost barrow has a mound 19 metres in diameter and 1.2 metres high, partly truncated on its southern side by an old quarry. Immediately to the south west of this barrow is a second barrow which has a mound, approximately 15 metres in diameter and 1.2 metres high. A third mound was previously identified as a barrow and is now visible as an irregular mound, approximately 26 metres long, 18 metres wide and 2.5 metres high, orientated north east-south west. Surrounding each mound is a quarry ditch from which materials were excavated during the construction of the barrows. These have become infilled but survive as buried features up to 3 metres wide. Scheduled.
