This Bronze Age round barrow is a Scheduled Monument. It is a Bowl-shaped mound, situated a little below the top of a rounded knoll which forms part of a narrow steep-sided watershed. It has been spread by infrequent ploughing.
Round barrows are a type of burial mound, particularly used in the Bronze Age. Mounds of earth and stone were placed over a burial or cremation. A single barrow could be re-used for several later burials.
