A sub-circular earthwork mound, circa 20m in diameter is visible on aerial photographs taken from 1946 onwards and on digital images derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2017, on a plateau to the south of the Old Orchard House, Ipplepen. It has been interpreted as a possible Bronze Age barrow, however, a broad and slight earthwork hollow that surrounds the mound, circa 10m wide, may also suggest the earthworks here are of natural origin. The earthwork mound is shown on the Ordnance Survey 2018 MasterMap.
