From Bristol take the A4175 south east to the pretty (posh) village of Bitton.
Best place to park is near the church and walk along the ‘private road’, over a bridge and towards some stables which has a public right of way (signposted)
Once you reach the stables the Barrow can be easily seen in a field to the right.
The footpath leads across the fields to the Barrow on the appropriately named barrow Hill.
The Barrow is approximately 2m high x 30m across and covered in overgrown long scruffy grass. It is fenced off – presumably to protect it from any horse damage?
This was my only site of the day on a daytrip to Keynsham and a good one it was too.
Well worth a visit if you are ever near the urban sprawl which is Bristol.
If you seen horse manure for your garden this is the place for you.
Unfortunately I left my shovel and bags at home – much to the relief of Karen and the children!
