[visitedish 13/3/11] Apparently not much to see here, but as genuine earthern long barrows are rare in these parts, I headed over for a shufty. I only got as far as the field next door though. From there the barrow is clearly flattened from what it was but surviving and obvious as a raised bank in the field.
Then I met the friendly son of the farmer who owns the land and was politely told I was off the footpath and I should ask permission from the farm if I want to see the barrow close up...
Access is either across fields from sparrow pit or via Harrat Grange farm which is within clear site of the barrow. *whistles*
This long barrow is orientated East-West and is approx. 42x17m.
On the whole it's not very impressive suffering from stone pits and ploughing.
It was dug in the 1770's where the only recorded finds were bones, of an unspecified type.
There's places to park in Sparrowpit and the barrow is half a mile across the fields.
