On the way home from a pleasant (but wet) visit to Slade Farm (Open Farm Sunday) I took the opportunity to check out this Barrow just north of Wick village. There is a lay by to the south of the site which I parked in and walked back up the road to the field gate. I jumped over the gate and walked a little way into the field. All that remains of the Barrow is a small bump in the field – just about recognisable.
To be honest not really worth a visit.

COFLEIN records the site as:
'A ploughed down, circular mound, 15.2 metres in diameter and 0.4m high'.
