This bowl barrow sits on top of a hill rising out of the local heathland. It is about 1/2 a mile from Bull barrow and is 22 metres in diameter and about 1 1/2 metres in height.
The barrow is covered in vegetation but I did manage to walk up it. The centre of the barrow has a large rectangular depression in it. Any surrounding ditch which may have existed has now become infilled and cannot be seen.
