The monument includes three bowl barrows which are located on a north facing slope immediately to the east of an Icknield Way path. The most northern barrow is visible as a low earthen mound, which stands to a height of approximately 0.3m and covers a roughly circular area measuring approximately 36m in diameter.
A second bowl barrow is situated approximately 40m to the east of the first. It is visible as a roughly circular earthen mound, with a height of about 0.5m and a maximum diameter of 43m.
A third bowl barrow is situated 50m south of the first barrow and 60m to the south west of the second. This is also visible as a low circular mound with a maximum diameter of 41m and a height of about 0.4m.
The mounds of all three barrows have been spread by ploughing and are thought to overlie the ditches which originally encircled them and provided material for the construction of the mounds. These will now survive as buried features.
