|2500bc-14/1300bc||An oval barrow oriented NNW, the mound largely of flints and clay, a natural clay and chalk floor, with in the east quadrant a collared urn of the secondary series placed upright in a pit dug to precise fit, the ashes secured by a rectangular tabloid flint c15cm square lying on their surface within the urn. In the south quadrant there was a second and similar collared urn inverted over a cremation, with a rectangular tabloid flint c15cm square on its base. In the south east sector was a small cairn covering a cremation, with a huge tabloid flint as a capstone 0.45m x 0.4m. In the south west sector was a very small crudely made bipartite vessel on its side containing a cremation.
Some 4.5m ENE of the barrow was an inhumation burial comprising part of the upper half of a human skeleton, laid in a shallow scoop and covered with a flint layer.
