Visited 24.4.15

On a crossroads about 1km south-east of the village of Coln St Aldwyns

Access is easy.
You can park on the grass verge and the barrow is right next to the road, the other side of the hedge.
There appears to be a depression where it has been dug into although E.H. states there is no evidence of excavation. No doubt they are right and I am wrong!.
Worth a quick look if you happen to be passing but don’t go out of your way.

E.H. state:
‘A round barrow immediately north of the Salt Way. The barrow measures 19m east-west by 15m north-south and is 1.5m high. The barrow is thought to have been the meeting point of Brightwold’s Hundred, known as ‘La Berge near Hatherop’, although this identification has not been proven’.
