A possible low earthwork mound was visible to the north-east of Starved Oak Cross on digital images derived from lidar data.
The possible mound was situated in an area of irregular natural topography, but the processed lidar imagery appears to show a low, roughly circular earthwork up to circa 39 metres in diameter.
The mound is probably the remains of a round barrow of Bronze Age date, a southern outlier of the Upton Pyne Barrow cemetery. It is likely to be the feature identified by the above authority.
