Full Description

A small turf-covered mound, 2.5m by 1.5m and up to 0.4m high, with a possible shallow ditch or animal trampling, particularly on its uphill side. The mound could be of natural origin, perhaps a former badger digging, but it lies close to the Devon-Somerset border and may be a former boundary mound (see others in the vicinity). [1]
