Almost completely lost to several centuries of the plough, the barrow's dimensions are pretty tricky to calculate.
Ah well. T'aint too bad as the barrow's isolated location along with the great views from up here to a number of other Bronze Age burials in the vicinity more than make up for its unexciting proportions.

Excavated by Bateman snr and Mitchell in 1825.
They uncovered a human burial within a rock cut grave, and some evidence for later re-use.
Excavation info: J.Barnatt's & J. Collis' "Barrow Corpus"

The barrow is on private land.
