This possible Bronze Age barrow is a Scheduled Monument. It is described as a conical tumulus in a field opposite the Blue Boar Farm, which has been more or less disturbed . The 1988 survey records a large bowl-shaped mound, originally 20 metres in diameter but now ploughed out to over 30 metres.
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.
