Identified through lidar survey (Davis et al. 2010, 180) as one of a pair of low-profile mounds (LP2) (maximum height c. 20m, diameter c.30m). Slight traces of an outer enclosure exist, about 140m in diameter which is defined by an extremely low bank, in which the mound is centrally located. Geophysical survey revealed evidence of a destroyed covering mound and a cut feature, 16m long by 2m across with splayed terminals, each 7m long. It is suggested (Davis et. al. 2013, 231) that this arrangement of mound incorporating a cut feature with splayed terminals may represent the remains of a former passage tomb.
