A probable Bronze Age Round Barrow is seen as an earthwork on aerial photographs (S8-S9). The barrow can be seen well on the 1970s aerial photographs (S8) and is also visible on recent (2018) aerial photographs (S9). The barrow is in close proximity to further scheduled barrows (IKL 004 and IKL 005) approximately 650 meters to the north and is mapped on the Frist Edition Ordnance Survey map (S10). The SHER monument polygon has been updated to correlate with the position of the barrow from the aerial photographs.
