Mound west of white ladder stone row. C 2.5 metres in diameter and c.25 metres high.

A detailed study was carried out on this area in 1977 . This mound was the subject of investigation in September 1979. The excavation, directed by Mr John Rowley of Hull College of Technology, produced no good data for determining the age or function of this mound and it may be a natural feature.
