Two round barrows, known as the Brown Howes. The southern barrow mound measures 27 metres in diameter and stands up to 2.5 metres high. A hollow in the centre of the mound indicates partial excavation in the past. The northern side has been disturbed by badger burrowing. The northern barrow has a maximum diameter of 30 metres and stands up to 2 metres high. Again, partial excavation in the past has left a hollow in the centre, and there is also a 4 metre square hole in the southern edge of the mound.
