The monument is a bowl barrow surviving as a low mound, 30 metres in diameter and 0.3 metres high, in a ploughed arable 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. This barrow is one of a loose cluster of four barrows on a gentle south-west-facing slope near the centre of the area covered by the Upton Pyne barrow group. This group comprises over 30 recorded barrows.
