I saw this Barrow marked on the O/S and thought I would have a look after visiting the nearby Meini Hirion standing stone. I couldn't see a handy field gate so I had to peer through the high hedgerow – a task nigh on impossible if visiting in the summer.
The Barrow itself is no more than a low mound at the far end of the field – next to the hedgerow. I would guess it is approximately 20 metres long by about 1 metre high.
Overall, not much to recommend a visit I'm afraid.

Coflein describes the site as:
A ploughed down earthen mound, c.15-20m in diameter & 1.3m high, thought to be the remains of a round barrow.
