A possible Bronze Age round barrow survives as an earthwork within Thetford Warren. It was first identified during tree felling in 2005, but is also visible on imagery from lidar survey flown in 2015. A second possible barrow (NHER 42782) has been identified less than 10m to its northwest.

2005. Discovered during felling. Grid reference from GPS.
A possible mound, but rather larger and flatter than NHER 42782 adjacent.
It has been agreed that it will not be destumped or replanted.
For an early record on an unlocated mound in this area see NHER 2754.

Mound ploughed and planted with tree seedlings following clear felling. The seedlings will be removed and the plough furrows infilled by hand.

The possible Bronze Age round barrow described above is visible as an earthwork on imagery from a recent lidar survey (S1). It should be noted that the ground surface in the surrounding area is extremely uneven, and it is possible that the feature is instead of natural or relatively modern origin. Conversely, in addition to the second mound (NHER 42782) identified less that 10m to the northwest, there could be further barrows as yet unidentified in the surrounding area.
