Just north along a minor road out of the small village of Barnsley you come to this Barrow, easily seen on your left, next to the road. There is room to park on the grass verge and a quick up and over the drystone wall brings you right up to the Barrow.
The Barrow is approximately 20 metres x 30 metres x 3 metres high.
Covered in brambles and evidently dug into at some point in the past.
Well worth checking out when in the area.
(SP 07240691) Tumulus (NR) A round barrow 25 paces dia by 5ft high, with a large hole in the centre. Mrs 0'Neil in 1938 noted a possible cist in the centre, and five upright stones of a retaining kerb around the east edge. (2)
SP 07240693 As described although there is now no evidence of a possible cist or kerb, nor trace of a ditch. Divorced survey at 1:2500 on permatrace. (3) The barrow is as described above (1-3). The barrow is visible on aerial photographs taken in 1942, which show the depression at the centre of the barrow, measuring about 5m wide by 6m long, orientated north-south. A possible outer ditch is faintly visible as a cropmark around the barrow measuring 32m in diameter but this is not visible on later aerial photographs. This may suggest a Bell barrow rather than a Bowl barrow (5-6)
