|Name:||Bronze Age round barrow|
An earthwork mound was identified during a rapid survey in 1998. The mound is probably a Bronze Age round barrow. This barrow, along with NHER 4992, 33455 and 33457, form a small barrow cemetery (NHER 61495), which is itself located in close proximity to numerous other barrows, forming a dispersed cemetery landscape group (NHER 61484) in this area.
