There are parking places next to the footpath entrance, and the barrow can be seen from here, walk down the road to the leaning boundary stone then thirty metres through heather and past old mining ruins and thar she blows. Rising above the surrounding featureless moors like a whale breaching the surface, instead of blowing spray it gives forth stone.
The three metre high barrow has what coflein describes as a boundary stone on it and indeed the map shows the boundary mark as going straight over the barrow.
Without direct sunlight these moors can be very dark and moody and just a little bit unerving.
