Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.


Three bowl barrows aligned north east-south west on a gentle south facing slope. To the west, two mounds form a twin bowl barrow. Each mound is composed of earth, turf and sand with maximum dimensions of 8 metres in diameter and about 0.75 metres in height. The mounds are surrounded by a quarry ditch. The ditch is visible as an earthwork 1 metre wide and extends around the periphery of the two mounds, but it does not divide them. To the east lies another bowl barrow with a mound 8 metres in diameter and 0.75 metres high. The associated quarry ditch has become infilled, but survives as a buried feature about 1 metre wide. Scheduled.
