I parked at the locked metal gate which gives access to a track which leads to the Barrow.
I jumped over the gate and walked up for a closer look.

The Barrow is now no more than a mangled grass covered mound.

Canmore states:
‘A turf covered mound of earth and stones, 1m high, truncated by quarrying and mutilated by the addition of a WD gun post. It is too indefinite to classify but its conspicuous position on a broad back low eminence suggests a barrow’.
