A bowl barrow visible as a turf-covered earth and stone mound of 2.8m maximum height. The diameter varies between 31.4m and 17m. Untypically for Exmoor it has a retaining kerb which has been robbed on the eastern side. The barrow has been robbed or "excavated" from the SE, the spoil form which has been dumped on the summit creating a false top. Surrounding the barrow there are traces of a ditch about 2.5m to 3m wide and 0.1m in depth. The barrow is crossed by an enclosure wall which marks the county boundary between Devon and Somerset. The barrow was alleged to have a trig point inserted but there is no immediate evidence for this.
L.V.Grinsell says this is a very large round barrow, 100 feet in diameter and 7 1/2 feet in height. He also says it has a peristalith in good condition. The Devon / Somerset border appears to pass through it. It appears to be part of large cemetary group. I will be visiting this and other barrows in the area soon, photos and fieldnotes to follow.
