More information : A mound approximately 11 metres in diameter and visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs may be the remains of a small round barrow or cairn of Bronze Age date on Kipscombe Hill, centred on circa SS 76824943. Previously recorded as part of NMR UID 1002047, the mound was identified on the ground and recorded as standing circa 0.3 metres high.

It is now bisected by a modern west-east fence. (1-2).
