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.
