The easternmost of three bowl barrows which lie 160 metres north-west of Venn Cottages, situated on a high upland ridge which overlooks the valley of a tributary to the River Torridge. These three barrows form part of a larger cemetery which lies along this ridge. It survives as a circular mound which measures 32.7 metres in diameter and stands up to 1.8 metres high. The surrounding ditch, from which material was quarried during the construction of the mound, is preserved mainly as a buried feature, although it may be traced on the northern side where it measures 4.4 metres wide and 0.1 metres deep.
