An oval shaped earthwork mound, circa 23m in length by 19m in width, situated on southwest facing slope to the north of Cockleford Bridge, Ipplepen, is visible as a soil mark on aerial imagery captured between 2006 and 2007, and as an earthwork on imagery derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2017. The origin of the earthwork is largely unclear, although its form and topographic setting on the upper slopes of a spur offers some support to the interpretation that it represents a prehistoric barrow. It is also equally likely, however, to be of natural origin.
