|3500bc - 2500bc||Long barrow oriented NNW. Small primary oval mound oriented SE/NW made of sand with turf and charcoal, covering pink and gray traces (of bone?) in stained floor, possibly a mortuary area. A pit contained calcined flints. There were two charcoal patches. Soil acidity destroyed any bone.
The secondary mound was rectangular, with a core of conical loam dumps covered by sand and capped by gravel and turf bonded to a vertical revetment of peat and turf sods, reinforced by brushwood panels. There was a ditch of U-shape opening NNW, in which were found primary plain bowl sherds and flintwork especially at the NNW terminal. In the secondary ditch silts was a succession of Mortlake and Beaker sherds and flintwork, especially at the NNW terminal.
