Two round mounds, possible barrows, and one long mound.
Visited 28th March 1958. The long mound is approximately 70 metres north-south. It abuts the hedge on the east but there are no obvious slopes. On west the slopes blend with natural contours of field. Whole field is undulating and unable to definitely identify the two round mounds.
Visited 7th November 1978. None of these features is a barrow.
