Notes

Two bowl barrows, the most northerly of a group of round barrows that are situated on the south western edge of the Mendip Hills. The larger, most northerly, barrow includes a mound 17 metres in diameter and 0.7 metres high with a gently sloping profile. The second barrow includes a mound 12 metres in diameter and 0.3 metres high with a slightly uneven profile. Although no longer visible on the surface, a ditch surrounds each of the mounds, in each case surviving as a buried feature approximately 2 metres wide. Scheduled.
