Come off the M27 at junction 7, then the A334, then the A27 north.
Turn right along the B3035 then the minor road on the left just before the hospital.
You will then see Monarch Way on your left – park here. (opposite school)
Walk down the road through the housing estate and you will shortly arrive at the Barrow.

This Barrow is a whopper!
It is about 2m high x 25m long x 10m wide – covered in trees.
I like it when these Barrows have been saved despite development.
No doubt that wouldn’t have been the case not so many years ago!

The strange thing is E.H. has a record of the nearby (and virtually disappeared) Moorgreen House Barrow but has nothing to report on this fine Barrow.
I wonder why?

This Barrow is well worth seeking out.
