Although marked as Tumulus on the map there is no sign of it on the ground.

Ploughed out?

E.H state:
'The monument includes a bell barrow of Bronze Age date situated 520m west of Pendown. The barrow is situated on a gentle north west facing spur about 900m north west of the barrow group at Four Burrows. Earlier descriptions of the barrow make it clear that it had a berm - or level platform - around the central mound and was ditched. Due to ploughing these features can no longer be recognised and the monument appears now as a mound with a rounded profile, 2m high with a diameter of 34m'
