I saw this marked on the O/S map so just had to visit.

The Barrow is situated in a wood on the south side of a minor road to the west of Stow - On - The – Wold.

The Barrow is completely overgrown with trees / bushes and head height brambles. It was impossible to get close to the Barrow or make out any features. It is literally now a large mound of brambles amongst dense undergrowth near the road.
It would be easy to miss it completely unless you were looking for it.

Definitely not worth a battle with the undergrowth for!
