Description :
One of a pair of round barrows (PRN 4564m) on low ground in the Border Vale. Access could not be negotiated and the monument was concealed from the road by the hedge; measurements from Glamorgan Inventory.. Details of siting could however be recorded. During road-widening in 1929, which destroyed the W half of the barrow, a rectangular stone cist 1.3x 0.7m by 0.6m deep was discovered, containing the crouched skeleton of a man, lying on the right side with head to the N and a beaker against its back (Nash-Williams 1930).
