The field and mound are under a crop of young wheat and, inaccessible. The barrow occupies the summit of a knoll in an undulating area. No evidence of a second barrow was seen along the nearby railway in the area indicated centred at SP 6270 8433. (3) Located and surveyed on field document. (4) No change. The barrow has been much spread by the plough and is correct as shown on OS 25" 1961. (5)
