The northernmost pair of barrows are the most prominent. Of these, the northen mound measures 17.4 metres in diameter and 0.9 metres high, while the southern mound is 16 metres in diameter and 0.6 metres high. Of the westernmost pair of barrows, the eastern barrow lies on the summit of the hill and measures 14.4 metres in diameter and 0.3 metres high; the western barrow is 16.2 metres in diameter and 0.4 metres high.
