Earthworks of two bowl barrows on Turner's Puddle Heath, northeast of Clouds Hill. The northwestern barrow has a diameter of 22 metres and survives to a height of 2 metres. The southeastern barrow has been truncated by a road and surmounted by a triangulation pillar. It also had a flag pole inserted into the mound but this has been removed. The mound measures 22 metres east-west, 12.5 metres north-south and 1.5 metres high. A section through the mound made by the road, showed it to have been constructed of large heath turves. Finds of an ovate flint knife and part of a flint dagger were found when the flag pole was inserted into the mound.
