Despite the fierce wind (and it starting to pour down half way across the field – no coat!) I stuck at it and after a 15 minute walk I was 'rewarded' with a patch of ground chest high in grass. I could just about make out a small mound but certainly not worth getting soaked for. The rest of the field had been ploughed. There is a public right of way to the site starting at the minor road next to what appeared to be a new build house. Don't be put off but the start of the walk is up the house drive!

This barrow is a double ditched barrow, measuring approx. 20m across. It is one of the best preserved barrows at Thornborough, but having said that the probably later burial that I watched being excavated had clearly been part ploughed. Close by was the early digging of a possible large post pit. Posted by BrigantesNation
