A Bronze Age bowl barrow, listed by Grinsell as West Knoyle 2, and located at The Warren. Excavated in the early 19th century by Colt Hoare, who reported finding only an empty "cist" (ie pit or grave). The barrow is extant as a ditchless mound 8 metres in diameter and 0.8 metres high. The erection of an Ordnance Survey triangulation pillar on its southwestern side has, not surprisingly, caused some damage. An associated earthwork, which has been suggested by some to represent a Bronze Age enclosure, in fact appears to represent recent field boundaries.
