This barrow is surrounded by a fence that has been placed right up to the bank. It's circular and roughly 30 metres in diameter. The stone and earth bank and the inner ditch are quite well preserved though partially destroyed in the north-east quadrant. The top of the mound, on which has been placed an official fógra, rises to about a metre and a half. The monument can be reached from the track to the north of Rhode village. ryaner Posted by ryaner
