Notes

A Neolithic long barrow comprising an elongated mound 82 metres long and up to 34 metres wide, with a maximum height of 1.7 metres. Orientated northeast-southwest, the summit has been divided into two unequal halves, possibly by antiquarian digging. Some antiquarian reports refer to a barrow dug into in the late 18th century whose "contents proved uninteresting".
