Aerial Photographic Transcription (26 April 2012)

This round barrow has been recorded as a cropmark on oblique aerial photographs (RCAHMSAP 1977, 1995). It is circular in plan and defined by a ditch about 1.9m wide. The enclosed area is 4.5m in diameter and appears to have a central pit. What may be Roman road quarry pits are located 73m t the E of the barrow, running N-S.
