The fantastic ‘Hampshire Treasures’ resource gives the following info – “Money Hills, and Barrow Hill. – 4 barrows - A - Bowl Barrow. 24.0m. diameter and 1.2m. high. No ditch. B - Bell barrow 26.0m. diameter, height 2.5m. Surrounding ditch. C - Bell barrow 20.0m. diameter, 1.5m. high. Surrounding ditch. D - Not located. Scheduled Ancient Monument - No. 281”

Bronze Age barrows are locally called ‘Money Hills’ - probably a corruption of ‘many hills’.
