Very little is known about
this round barrow and there is no record of it ever being excavated. It is assumed
to date from the Bronze Age although English Heritage suggest that it
could be a later Roman burial mound or an early Medieval moot hill or
'thing' mound. It measures about 27 metres by 21 metres being somewhat
truncated on the eastern side by plough damage and stands to a height
of between 3-4 metres.
