A medium sized bowl barrow on the West Knighton and Warmwell boundaries. It is 18 metres in diameter and 2 metres high. It was damaged by the military during the second world war, but is not in bad condition. It is set in mixed woodland surrounded by huge holes in the ground from gravel quarrying.
Huck appears to be a corruption of hook - referring to it's position at the corner of three parish boundaries.
