It measures about 37-metre (121 ft) long, 34-metre (112 ft) metres wide, and has a maximum height of 3 metres (9.8 ft). It contains a stone built central passage with two chambers on either side and another at the end. The earthen mound is surrounded by a dry-stone revetting wall.
The mound is named after Hester, wife of the 17th century landowner Henry Pegler. Hester died in 1694, and Henry in 1695. It is clearly sign-posted from the side of the nearby Crawley Hill (B4066 road) between Uley and Nympsfield. It is about 1.4 kilometres (0.87 mi) to the south of Nympsfield Long Barrow.
The barrow was reopened in 2011 after a short closure for essential health and safety work.
