Located on slight rise which is on an E-facing slope in an undulating landscape. This is a slightly domed (H 0.4-0.5m) but overgrown area (diam. 22.5m E-W; 20m N-S) defined by an earthen bank (Wth of base 5-5.5m; int. H 0.3-0.4m; ext. H 0.6-0.8m), with slight traces of an external fosse E-SSW. There are gaps in the perimeter at N, ENE and SE. It could be a ring-barrow.
