Impressively large bowl barrow, visible as you walk along the top of Whiteshoot Hill / Broughton Down through the trees. It is however under large-scale ploughing so expect it to get less impressive with each passing year.

Hampshire Treasures says
"Also known locally as Bol's or Bald Turret. Average diameter 43m, height 3m."
