We present results of magnetisation, electrical resistivity and critical current measurements in applied magnetic fields on single crystals of the superconductor, Yb3Rh4Sn13. An irreversible peak is observed in the magnetisation, at high fields below H-c2. Evidence for a region of enhanced pinning is obtained from resistance measurements in magnetic fields. The temperature and field region where these anomalies are observed have been mapped. The anomalous features seen in the magnetisation and resistance measurements extend to T similar to 0.9T(c). The results presented here for Yb3Rh4Sn13 resemble those obtained for CeRu2, which is considered a candidate for the observation of the Fulde-Ferrel-Larkin-Ovchinnikov state.
