This tumulus lies to the south of the village of Ligné and is sign posted from the village hall.
The village itself is famous for it's cemetery, which contains various knights graves.

The tumulus mound is approximately 30m in diameter by 3.5m high, surrounded by a large circle of trees.
An entrance passage can be seen which connects to a ruined inner chamber.
Although the site is badly damaged, it is scheduled and will, in time, be excavated and restored, along with many of the other fine barrows in Charente.
