A ‘medium sized tumulus’ was recorded on the heath in 1880. In 1991 the site was identified as being visible only as a vegetation mark, and a slight depression where a trackway running through the site crosses what may be a ring ditch. The feature could not be traced in 1999. No features were identified during the field survey, at which time the area was under dense gorse.
