Just to confirm what TSC has stated, the Long Barrow is not visible from the lane to the south due to a combination of high hedge, stone walls and buildings.

The best bet for a way of access would be to ask permission from one of the houses. How you would work out which house to ask at I don’t know?

Not something I had the time or inclination to do on this trip.

Tucked away behind the farmhouse, this long barrow is not visible from the road, nor from the bridleway on the opposite side of the valley to the south-west. It is situated on the edge of a steep sided valley, down-slope from the top of the hill in typical Cotswold long barrow fashion. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
