This is the only 'securely identified oval barrow' in Humberside according to EH but I've seen very similar long barrows elsewhere . In the scheduling of 1995 they give its height as 1.75 metres but it didn't look much over a metre to me while the 52m east-west and 30m north-south looked about right.
The mound is on private land with notices of a bull in the field, although I didn't see one.
