Large barrow measuring 40 x 30m, and 2m high. Even viewed from the lane, which is as about as close as you can get to it, it's an impressive looking beast.

It's not yet known for certain as to whether the details that exist for an excavation carried out in 1852, when a skeleton and bronze dagger were discovered, refers to this barrow or not.
