The first (CWTC08 40) has been reduced to a low grass-grown mound, measuring about 5m in diameter by 0.3m in height, with a shallow, subrectangular depression in its top.

The second (CWTC08 41) is situated immediately NW. It, too, has a shallow depression in it top, and measures 4m in diameter by no more than 0.2m in height.
