[ST 01273396] Tumulus (NR) (3)

The Bronze Age bowl barrow described by the previous authorities was seen as an earthwork and mapped from aerial photographs and measures roughly 15m in diameter. (4)

The Bronze Age barrow survives as a circular earthen mound 12.5 m in diameter and 0.5 m high. It lies in improved pasture, and has been truncated on its southern side by a track which is also a public footpath. In addition, the summit of the barrow has been disturbed, probably by a ring feeder being placed upon it; this seems to have happened very recently. (5)
