A group of four round barrows, located on the summit of a south facing slope above Rookham. Three of the barrows are bowl-shaped and are thought to be Late Neolithic to Bronze Age in date. One of the three is no longer clearly visible on the ground but does appear on aerial photographs. The fourth barrow survives as an irregular spread of stones, surrounded by a berm which is in turn enclosed by a ditch. It has been interpreted as a bell or disc barrow of Bronze Age date.
