Description

Small round barrow about 9m diameter and 0.3m high. Very difficult to see in amongst high mature heather. It is the only small barrow indentified on this ridge which has three other much larger barrows on the high parts of the ridge. This barrow though lies slightly lower than the rest on a saddle on the ridge itself. There appears to have ben some distrubance in the past from excavation or paths.
