Notes: "An earthen long barrow with a ruined stone chamber at the south east end. Early excavation and mutilation has resulted in two distinct mounds, the larger one at the south east end separated from the smaller by a path or trackway. The smaller mound appears to mark the limit of the barrow on the northwest; beyond this it merges into the natural hill-side. There are no side ditches but these may be obscured by soil washed down from the hill. The length is 42.0 m; the maximum width is 18.0m and the maximum height of 2.4m."
