The only place to park is at the drive to the farm building immediately south of the Barrow.

The Barrow is clearly visible from the road as a grass covered mound.

E.H. state:
‘Two prehistoric round barrows situated on top of a ridge north of St Columb Major. They are associated with other barrows beyond this scheduling. The western barrow measures 22m across and 1.3m high. It is considered to have been smoothed by ploughing. The barrow to the east is approx 20m across and 0.3m high and is again reduced by ploughing’.
