From Danebury Hillfort take the road south a short distance until you come to the crossroads. The Barrow is next to the crossroads on the northern side – covered in scrub.

E.H. state:
‘A bowl barrow, part of a linear group containing at least 5 round barrows which lie in undulating ground to the south of Waters Down Farm. An elongated mound 23m in diameter and 1.2m high and the exposed section on the roadside shows it to be constructed of chalk rubble overlying a turf core’.

** There is a further Barrow at SU3409837553 which I did not have time to investigate.
