This is well preserved and is now at the bottom of two gardens. You can see it from the Alresford Drove byway on the north-east edge of South Wonston. The householders keep the grass trim and stop any naughty rabbit burrows, so this is perhaps the best of the local long barrows. Long grass, weeds, junk etc seem to have been tidied up a lot since the 1976 photo in the Royal Commission on Historical Monuments book (Long Barrows in Hampshire and the IOW).
