Bowl barrow surviving as a low mound, 25 metres in diameter and 0.4 metres high, also visible on air photographs, in a ploughed arabled field. Despite its low surface profile, extensive sub surface mound layers and intact funerary deposits are considered likely to survive. As excavation of a nearby barrow revealed, barrows in this group were terraced into the slope and have been preserved by subsequent soil build-up. In addition, there is no visible or recorded evidence that the barrow has been excavated and the deposits should remain in an intact, undisturbed state. The barrow is situated on the east slope of a slight spur overlooking a broad shallow valley at the centre of the area covered by the Upton Pyne barrow group. This group comprises over 30 recorded barrows.
