From the A470 (just south of Builth Wells) take the B4594 east.
The barrow is next to the road on the southern side – south east of Blaen Henllan cairn.

The barrow is now no more than a minor ‘bump’ in a field. Access is via a field gate near a passing place.

Not worth the effort.

COFLEIN state:
A Mound 17m in diameter and 0.5m high, set on a low spur in a valley bottom.
