A small circular mound is visible on aerial photographs on South Regis Common, Challacombe. Centred at SS 7101 4038 on false crest above an unnamed tributary of Old Close Bottom, the mound measures approximately 11 metres in diameter. Its form and position in such a prominent location indicate that it may be a Bronze Age cairn or funerary monument. A second Bronze Age barrow is visible 200 metres to the southeast on Shoulsbarrow Common. [1,2]
