A medium sized bowl barrow north of Whitcombe Vale and Blacknoll. There are a scattering of barrows in this area which may be a large cemetery. Some are on high ground and others are on the flats in between. formicaant Posted by formicaant

Two Bronze Age bowl barrows situated on a knoll overlooking Frome Valley to the north. The larger barrow is 18m in diameter and 1.5m high with a ditch visible as a 2m wide depression to the north and south, elsware the ditch will survive as a buried feature. The upper part of the mound has a number of trenches cut into it of military origin. This barrow is scheduled. The other barrow is scrub covered.
