Saw this on the map (tumulus) so thought I would check it out despite E.H. having nothing to report on the site.
Taking the A363 south we turned north following the signs for Monkton Farleigh.
Drive north through the village and past the manor house.
Take the first left and you will shortly come to the public footpath signs pointing north and south. You can park at the southern path but take the northern path to the Barrow.
You walk along the edge of a field which was full of crop – wheat.
When you reach the second field you will just about be able to make out the much ploughed out remains of the Barrow.
It is now a slight mound about 0.5m high x 20m across.
So not much to see but this is such a pleasant part of the world that a walk in the countryside here makes the visit (just about) worthwhile.
On the way back to the car the sound of not too distant shotguns could be heard.
[ST 8084 6638] TUMULUS [OE]. (1)

This is a bowl barrow 0.8m high. Surveyed at 1/2500. (4)
