A Neolithic long barrow orientated east to west situated on level ground 340 metres north west of Cooks Cottages. The barrow is not visible at ground level, having been largely reduced by ploughing over time, but is visible on aerial photographs and an oval enclosure defined by a single continuous ditch measuring 20 metres wide and 60 metres long. The ditch, from which material was quarried to construct the mound, has become infilled over time but both the ditch and the remains of the mound will preserve buried deposits. The barrow was first identified during the course of the Thames Valley Mapping Project undertaken by the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England. Scheduled.
