A pale circular mound circa 18 meters in diameter, with external ditch approximately 7 metres wide, is visble on aerial photographs between 1946 and 1959 as a cropmark. It is interpreted as a round barrow of probable Bronze Age date. It is not visible on later available aerial photographs and but there is potential for remains to survive below ground and as slight earthworks.
