A decent enough bowl barrow, the Beech trees that grow on the barrow making its location very easy to spot from quite a distance.
Access is easy enough along a path from Moatlow Farm, room to squeeze a car off the road near the path and farm.

Thomas Bateman partially excavated here in 1845, revealing a
rock-cut grave containing two skeletons, the eastern burial accompanied by burnt bones, the western one by a bronze flat axe and the jaw of a pig.
The barrow is dated to the Bronze Age.
