SK 1592 6335. Low bowl-shaped mound measuring seven metres in length, five and half metres in breadth and 0.3 metres in height. It is located on a plateau-like ridgetop although with relatively poor visibility. This small low mound may be a barrow similar to 8.36 [SMR 31045] although it is less convincing, being smaller and close to shallow hollows which may be quarry pits. The mound is symmetrical and looks unrobbed. (1,2).
