'A' - SY 59969928. A mound, probably the remains of a barrow, situated 1000 yds east of Cattistock church, has been almost obliterated by ploughing. Grinsell added in 1959 that there was "No sign. Perhaps removed for flints". (2)
'B' - SY 60029931. A mound, 75 yds to the south-west of 'A' has been destroyed by gravel digging. The mound was "vague and almost gone" according to Grinsell. (3)
'A' - No trace under crop. Slight surface quarrying has taken place in the area.
'B' - A bowl barrow, 18.0m diameter by 0.3m high, under crop with no trace of ditch.
At 'C' - SY 59799929 is a bowl barrow with heavy flint content measuring 16.0m diameter by 0.8m high.
