Although close to a minor road in the hamlet of Allet (on the B3284) I couldn’t get anywhere near it due to a hedge of 15ft high gorse! (I kid you not)

Not only couldn’t I get anywhere near it – I couldn’t even see it!!

Good luck if you are planning a visit. Bring a suit of armour!

E.H. state:
‘Two plough reduced bowl barrows. The diameter of the mounds prior to cultivation was 21m though they have since been spread. The south western mound survives to a height of 1m whilst its neighbour survives to a height of 0.5m’.
