Visited 1.8.09 in persistent drizzle, after a stop at Tump Belt round barrow. The long barrow is right next to the footpath, the unploughed corner of an otherwise ploughed field. It is completely covered in nettles and other assorted vegetation, so it's impossible at this time of year to make out any shape. A winter viewing is obviously a better bet.

Tump Belt round barrow is visible on the edge of the small copse across the field to the NNE.
