Site visit 20th November 1979. Previously unrecorded barrow. A low mound, 17.0 by 14.5 metres and 0.3 metres high. Located in a marshy field which used to contain a piggery, which, if the mound is a barrow, could account for the mound's rather irregular edges and uneven surface. Poor condition. No sign of ditch.
