Although this barrow survives only as a low tree surrounded mound. It is relatively easy to spot as it is sited by the roadside at the highest point of the estate road as it crosses Chatsworth Park.
The estates deer population often shelter amongst the trees.

This barrow and its close neighbour Chatsworth Park Barrow are relatively new discoveries. Barnatt & Collis do not mention them in the barrow corpus, neither does Marsden in his earlier work on Derbyshire barrows.
It wasn't until John Barnatt surveyed Chatsworth Park, and subsequently published a book on the estate, that they came to light.
