Coflein description shows that the barrow yielded some great finds (wonder where they are now?):

Ploughed down round barrow survives as a low stony mound about 20m across and no more than 0.3m high in diameter and standing to no more than 0.75m high.

Upon excavation (1957?) a primary unaccompanied crouched burial was found, with a jet necklace and many other beads higher up in the body of the mound.

Coflein also lists a standing stone close by at Llong station, but indicates (1999) that it has been destroyed.
