The monument comprises the remains of an earthen built round barrow, which probably dates to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC). The barrow consists of traces of a low mound and buried archaeology within the rear gardens of two houses. The kerbed barrow that originally measured c 33m in diameter and was 1.5m high was excavated in 1961. This had been raised over an embanked stone circle 12m in diameter which remains in situ. An early Bronze Age urn and cremation and a shallow pit containing charcoal were associated with the embanked circle.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual practices. The features are an important relic of a prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape and retain significant archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of both intact ritual and burial deposits, together with environmental and structural evidence. Barrows may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.
