A ring ditch, being the levelled remains of a bowl barrow, located between Soldier's Ring enclosure and Damerham Iron Age/Romano-British settlement on Blackheath Down. The ring ditch is clearly visible in a 1971 aerial photograph as soil marks indicating a circular or slightly oval quarry ditch, 5 metres wide and 25 metres in diamter, surrounded by an outer bank, about 7 metres wide. Now in an area of cultivation and almost levelled by ploughing, traces of the bank and ditch survive as discontinuous earthwork features up to 0.15 metres high and 0.1 metre deep respectively. The remainder will survive as buried remains. Scheduled.
