There are plenty of barrows around here and this one was last on the list to see this morning, it was also the longest walk, parking on the road at a small junction by a smaller church then a long muddy walk (well I hope its just mud but I doubt it) up the track to the farm, it all follows the footpath, goes through the farm and is in a field behind the farm, the ruddy faced farmers wife said it was ok to go on through, despite it being lambing time.
The barrow is next to a hedge and seems cut through by the laying of the hedge and its very ploughed out, but still two feet high or so and visible, me and the map think its a bronze age barrow like the rest round here, but Coflein reckons it might be a natural feature.
