[24/2/13] Well this is a whopper! Completely and utterly trashed however with none of the chambers obvious especially if as Stubub intimates, the large stones on top are the remains of a lime kiln. Don't let that stop you visiting though, the views are immense in 300+ degrees making most of the northern part of the limestone plateau visible.

Access is best from the road to the West via a field then open access footpath along the edge of Tideslow Rake. You then need to leave the open access area to get to the other side of the wood.

Think the stones visible in the hollow on top of the barrow are in fact the remains of a lime kiln. stubob Posted by stubob

Remains of a chambered cairn, in one of the hollows in the dug out top are 2 large stones, not being an expert, I don't know if they the remains of the chamber or not. The cairn was built over a standing stone, this stone is supposed to be visible, again is this something to do with the larege stones on the top?

Views over the fields to Win and Lose Hill.
