The barrows form part of a dispersed group. This northernmost barrow survives as a circular mound 20.9 metres diameter by 2.5 metres high. The surrounding ditch survives as a buried feature approximately 3 metres wide. A field boundary kinks around this barrow on its western and southern sides. The field boundaries are excluded from the scheduling, although the ground beneath them is included.
