Under plough. Resurveyed at 1:2500. (3) English Heritage schedule entry describes the barrow mound as 25m in diameter and 0.5m high, and surrounded by a ditch (4). Smith and Goddard both described the monument as a low bowl-shaped barrow with no ditch. Prior to alteration of parish boundaries, the barrow was referred to as Yatesbury 5. (5, 6) The Bronze Age bowl barrow described by the previous authorities was seen as an earthwork and mapped form aerial photographs taken in 1946 (7). A ditch surrounding the barrow was not visible on the aerial photograph. By 1971 the barrow is likely to have been damaged as the field was under plough (8).
