NGR Easting: 237520

Description: Bronze Age burial mound. The mound survives to a maximum height of 2m, but is now somewhat indistinct and eroded. Several large stones show that it was once revetted by a substantial kerb with a diameter of 14m. The mound was investigated in 1904, revealing a cist and Middle Bronze Age pottery sherds. A stone axe was also recovered which may have been residual or an heirloom.

The name means the ‘giant’s grave’.
