Whist visiting the Matfen Stone I took the opportunity to have a quick look at the nearby barrow marked on my O/S map. Taking the minor road north east out of Matfen towards Warwick, the road takes a sharp turn to the right. Just beyond the bend I parked near a field gate and was able to see the barrow on the far side of the field. The field had recently been ploughed and the barrow appeared as a small 'grass island'.
I settled for a view from afar as I didn't fancy getting caked in mud.
