‘Visited’ 17.4.12

Taking the minor road east from the Carland Cross junction (A30 / A39) I stopped along the lane and climbed up the bank to look over the hedge in the hope of see something. Unfortunately I couldn’t see any trace of the Barrows from the road and I couldn’t see any obvious access point into the fields (there is no public right of way)
Given that the Barrows are only 0.2m high perhaps it is no surprise I couldn’t spot them!

E.H. state:
‘The monument includes a long barrow and four round barrows. The four round barrows are aligned WSW-ENE over 210m. The long barrow has a long mound orientated north east – south west with a slightly irregular tapered ovoid plan and measuring 22m long x 13m across and 0.4m high. The barrows are approximately 0.2m high and 15m across’.
