A bowl barrow on Batcombe Hill. The barrow has a mound, previously recorded as being 11 metres in diameter, and approximately 0.1 metres high. Surrounding the mound is a quarry ditch from which material was excavated during its construction. This has become infilled over the years but survives as a buried feature approximately 2 metres wide. The barrow lies within a prehistoric field system. Scheduled.
