A Bronze Age bowl barrow which lies on a high upland ridge to the north east of Mouseberry Cross on Meshaw Moor. It survives as a 2.3 metre high oval shaped mound which measures 29.5 metres long from east to west and 27.7 metres wide from north to south. The surrounding ditch from which material was quarried to construct the barrow survives mainly as a buried feature, although traced of the ditch are evident. To the south the mound and ditch have been cut by a field boundary's construction trench. The mound has been slightly flattened on its northern side. Scheduled.
