A short distance east of Sledmere, next to the B1253.

Although the field was still in crop (wheat) it was just about possible to spot the barrow as a long, low 'bump'. No doubt that within a few years it will have been completely ploughed out.

If you are in the area take time to visit the fantastic First World War memorial in Sledmere. It is also next to the B1253. A superb piece of stone masonry which tells an important story.
