Despite the field being in crop the 'bump' of the barrow could quite easily be seen from the field gate.

Not worth going out of your way for.

Heading south along quiet lanes, the Crossfield Lane round barrow can be seen over a field gate. Although once a large barrow, over 30m across, it's now been ploughed down to little more than a rise in the field. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Sadly ploughed down remains of a large round barrow, between Kinnerton Court stones and Four Stones.

Coflein (v. brief) description:

A plough-spread barrow, 34-32m in diameter and 1.0m high.
