Just off the A1065, north of Brandon.

As Postie says, the barrow is a big 'un and easy to see from the lane which runs immediately to the south.

As the barrow is in a field of crop (and the other side of a barbed wire fence) I also settled for a view from the road. Worth looking out for.

Way back in the summer I went to Grimes graves a more perfect day couldnt be had.
After the mines we were on route to Weeting castle when I spotted this on the map, seeing as we were passing I stopped off for a look, it's on private land so I didnt get too close but it looks to be atleast seven feet high and twenty across.
If it were in Cheshire (my own fair homeland) it would get an information board and then get ignored but over here it's just left to peak at travellers through the trees. Coooeee

.. "Pepper Hill" at Weeting is said to be so called because from its poplar-crowned summit "Oliver Cromwell peppered Weeting Castle."
From 'Norfolk and Suffolk' by W G Clarke (1921).
