The monument comprises a round barrow, a funerary monument characteristic of the earlier Bronze Age.

The barrow lies in gently rolling farmland at around 40m OD, and is bisected by a fenceline. A section of the barrow to the N and W of the fence has been removed by industrial and housing development, but the rest of the barrow survives as a grassy mound, standing to a height of about 2m with a diameter of approximately 38m.

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the remains of the barrow and an area around it where archaeological deposits relating to its construction and use may be expected to survive. It measures a maximum of 50m NE-SW by a maximum of 35m transversely, as shown in red on the accompanying map extract.
