Said by some to be a passage grave, this robbed out mound is oval in shape and shows no signs of a kerb. It's about 200 metres east-south-east of the excavated henge of the same name that has been cut into by a modern factory.
It's roughly 25 metres on its long axis and has a dug out depression at its eastern end.
