|Description ||The eastern bowl barrow, located at grid reference SZ03998130. The bridleway passes to the left, then through the gate on the left. The stone on the left side of the barrow is a footpath marker.|
The mound is 15 metres in diameter and about 1 metre tall. It was partially excavated by J H Austen in 1857. The remains of a primary inhumation and secondary infant inhumation associated with animal bones and an urn were identified. The upper part of an inverted collared urn associated with pieces of bone were also recovered from the area of the mound in 1967. [Info from monument scheduling]
