I spotted this on the O/S map and as I was in the area I thought –why not'?

Directions: Heading west out of the village of Naunton you soon come to a transmitter mast and a lay by where you can park. Walk a little way back along the road and you will see what remains of the Barrow on the other side of a drystone field wall next to the road.
Not much to see, just a long low mound about 1 metre high and 20 metres long.

If you didn't know it was there you would easily drive right past oblivious to its existence.
