The barrow is part of a dispersed group of barrows on this ridge and is also part of a group of three barrows aligned broadly northwest to southeast. It is listed as Barrow 25 by RCHME and Barrow A by the Ordnance Survey. The barrow survives as an earthwork measuring 25 metres in diameter and 0.8 metres high.
