A Bronze Age bowl barrow is situated within an arable field upon the top of a ridge, and is visible as an earthworks on aerial photographs. Field investigations in 1977 found it to be turf-covered, constructed of earth and stone. The barrow had a diameter of 16 metres in diameter and had a maximum height of 1.6 metres. There were no traces of a ditch. The mound had been ploughed up to its margin, but was otherwise in good condition. This site has been mapped from aerial photographs as part of the Cotswold Hills National Mapping Programme.
