A short distance east from the Half Way Inn (B3180 / A3052 junction) to the north of the A3052.

I could only spot one of the barrows as we sped along the busy A3052. The barrow appeared as a gorse covered mound surrounded by gorse covered heath.
Parking would be difficult.

E.H. state:
Two bowl barrows near the summit of Harpford Hill. The western barrow is 2m high by 16m in diameter. The eastern barrow is 1.6m high by 20m in diameter.
