No clear evidence for the earthwork mound of this round barrow was visible on aerial photographs at its recorded location. However, a cropmark of a ring ditch (NHER 43321) was observed 30m to its northeast. Although the cropmark ring ditch had a smaller diameter than the earthwork referred to above, it is possible that these are in fact the same monument.
