Two Bronze Age round barrows on Patterson's Bank. The barrows are adjacent, one lying to the north east of the other. The larger of the two is to the south west and has an earth and stone mound 17 metres in diameter and standing up to 1.8 metres high. It was originally surrounded by a kerb of stones which defined the barrow and supported the mound, two of which were decorated with cup marks. Some of the kerb stones are visible at the base of the mound in the south west and one in the east, but the remainder have been either taken away or buried by soil slipping from the mound. One cup marked stone is visible on the east side of the monument but it has slipped from its original position down the slope into a small quarry which clips the edge of the barrow. There is a hollow in the centre caused by the removal of an Ordnace Survey triangulation point. The smaller barrow lies 50 metres to the north east. It has a mound which is 11 metres in diameter and stands up to 1.5 metres high. In the centre there is a hollow caused by excavations in the past. Scheduled.
