The remains of a barrow or medieval motte which has survived as an earthwork. It is a steep sided earthen mound 19 metres in diameter and up to 2.8 metres high. The flat top is about six metres in diameter.

It has been interpreted as a motte or a large barrow. Excavations in the 19th century found the earthwork to be built of black soil and the site was scheduled in 1993 as a motte.
