Round barrow overlooking the River Teme. Although more elevated than other nearby barrows, it seems at least possible that this was associated with a series of round barrows along the river between Beguildy and Knighton.

EH description:

The monument includes the earthwork and buried remains of a Bronze Age bowl barrow located on a south west facing slope overlooking the Crochen Brook valley. It is one of several barrows situated within the valley of the River Teme. The barrow includes an earth and gravel mound up to 3m high with a diameter of approximately 30m. Although no longer visible at ground level, a ditch, from which material was quarried during the construction of the barrow, surrounds the mound. This has become infilled over the years but survives as a buried feature, approximately 3m wide.
