Description: Medieval burial mound. The well-defined conical shape of this mound, coupled with its prominent topographical location, is believed to imply a medieval rather than prehistoric origin. It has a maximum diameter of 12m, but is truncated on its south- and north-west sides by agricultural activity. A field boundary offers protection to the south-east. The mound survives to a height of 2m.
