There is room to park off the very busy A360 at the start of the track which leads to the transmitter aerials. The barrow is a short distance along the track.

Not a lot to see other than the usual low grass mound.

Can be seen quite easily when driving past.

A Bronze Age ditched bowl barrow lying to the south of Ogbury Hillfort.

This barrow was opened by Hoare, who found a primary inhumation, a large amber bead and perforated animal teeth necklace.

When the site was visited by the Ordnance Survey in 1972, it had been partly ploughed but has since been fenced off for protection.
