|2500bc-14/1300bc||A barrow with earth mound and gravel capping, and half destroyed by quarrying to the north west and west. A central pit and a second pit 6m to the north east were shallow elongated scoops containing blackish soil, a quantity of tiny fragments of charcoal, mere flecks of calcined bone and a few reddened pebbles. The central scoop contained a flint blade, slightly worked at one end as a scraper. The second contained unworked flints.
These may be token burials, cremations being carried out elsewhere.
