The mound comprises an egg-shaped mound, made of earth and flint with a flat-topped. A narrow bank is located around the northern edge of the mound. There is also a ditch surrounding the mound with a very slight outer bank which is visible on the west side of the ditch. Trees grow on the monument, mostly recent planted beech. A Scots Pine is growing on the west side of the mound, this is probably one of those recorded on the 19th century maps and described by Hutchinson.
