Two possible Bronze Age round barrows are located to the west of the Shire Ditch on the Malvern Hills. The barrows are visible as earthworks on aerial photographs. The northern mound is more rectangular and appears to have been slightly truncated by the western scarp of the Shire Ditch. The mound meaures 11.7m from north/south and 9.3m east/west; it is c 1.0m high. The southern mound is more circular and, in a similar manner to the other one, it appears to have been cut by the western scarp of the Shire Ditch. Overall the mound measures 7.7m east/west and 12.4m north/south. It is c 0.4m high with depression in the centre. A probable natural bank, 5.4m wide, links the two mounds.
