The earthwork remains of a ditched bowl barrow located on the summit of Lype Hill. The barrow mound measures 21 metres in diameter and stands up to 2 metres high. The top of the mound is encircled by a ring of white quartz blocks. The surrounding ditch survives as a depression roughly 2 metres wide and 0.4 metres deep. A large quartz block stands next to the north side of the barrow and there is an Ordnance Survey trigonometry pillar set into the mound.
