A bowl barrow situated on Emmett's Hill on the edge of a precipitous cliff to the west. The barrow has a mound composed of earth and limestone blocks, with maximum dimensions of 12 metres in diameter and about 0.75 metres in height. Partial cliff collapse has resulted in the loss of about 4 metres of the mound to the west. Surrounding the mound on the north, east and south sides is a quarry ditch which has become infilled over the years, but will survive as a buried feature 1.5 metres wide. Scheduled.
