Taking a minor road south out of Leighterton (very pretty village and worth a visit in its own right) you pass a very posh entrance to Whitley Stud Park Wood Farm on your right hand side – you can't miss it. There is space to park at the entrance.
The Barrow can be easily seen as a grass covered low mound in the field on your left
There didn't appear to be any easy way to get closer to the Barrow so I settled for a view from the Farm entrance – which did the job just fine.
I would say the barrow was about 10 metres in diameter and 1 metre high – largely ploughed out no doubt.
