Viewed from Wyaston Road these are largely inaccessible and not at all as captivating as the large barrow near Osmaston Fields Farm nor Tinkers' Hill. I would make a rough estimate of a height of 3-4 feet and diameter of 15-20 feet for the larger of the two and 3 feet and 10-15 feet for the smaller.

These seem greatly diminished and, I would guess, have been (are being?) ploughed into the ground.
