Pictured here are two large tree covered round barrows. The southern barrow is a large bell type, this is 104 feet in diameter and 7 feet in height. The other barrow is a bowl type to the north east of the bell, it is of similar size to it. The bowl has a distinct ditch surrounding most of its circumference.
There are other smaller barrows on this site which I will visit in the near future.
