Visited 15.7.10.
Easily seen from the lane which runs west from the Adam and Eve stones and past the longbarrow. A bit further down the lane past the longbarrow (on the left) you come to a house called Barrow Grange (on the right).
Although the land is obviously private the barrow is large and easily seen over the wooden fence from the entrance to Barrow Grange.
What a great thing to have in your garden!!!
