Notes

A bowl barrow situated towards the south west corner of a field, approximately 40 metres to the west of a tributary of the River Stour. It is visible as an earthern mound, which stands to a height of about 2 metres and covers a roughly circular area measuring about 22 metres in diameter. It is thought that the mound is encircled by a ditch, with an estimated width of 3 metres, from which earth was quarried during the construction of the barrow, and although this has now become completely infilled and is no longer visible, it will survive as a buried feature. Scheduled.
