Failed Visit 21.7.11

Following a successful visit to the nearby Barrow in Uphill I thought I would check this Barrow out I had spotted on the O/S map.
Unfortunately despite my best efforts I failed to get anywhere near it!

I planned to walk to the site from the hamlet of Loxton but there were major road works going on and every route I tried had a sign up stating the road was closed. How the good folk of Loxton managed to get home I don't know?
I then tried to access the Barrow from Bleadon Hill to the north but this time I was met with signs warning of 'Private Road'.
The closest I could get was the viewpoint car park on Bleadon Hill which would have meant a long walk in the wind and rain.
I decided not to bother!
