A bowl barrow situated on high ground at the heel of a slight east facing spur projecting from the eastern edge of a gravel plateau on Ibsley Common. The barrow includes a flat topped, circular mound, 9 metres in diameter and 0.45 metres high, constructed on a slight slope. No visible trace of a surrounding quarry ditch survives, but part excavation in 1917 indicated the presence of a shallow ditch, 1 metre wide, extending around the mound as a buried feature. Within the mound's core, just west of centre, the excavations revealed an oblong, north-south orientated void, possibly for a inhumation burial, filled with ferruginous clay and gravel resting directly on the undisturbed subsoil. Scheduled.
