The monument is situated at the summit of Gautries Hill in the north-west uplands of the limestone plateau of Derbyshire. It is a bowl barrow which includes a sub-circular mound measuring 17m by 15m and standing c.1.5m high. It is in a prominent location and is mutually visible with barrows on the tops of nearby Snels Low and Eldon Hill. A partial excavation of the site was carried out in 1876 by Pennington and Tym who discovered two limestone cists or graves, in which were found numerous flints and a bone pin. Elsewhere in the mound, human and animal bones were uncovered in addition to further flints and the remains of a pottery food vessel. The remains date the barrow to the Bronze Age.
