Visited 24th October 1982. Recotory Farm Barrow. In field next to road at Croft. This is a very well defined barrow. Despite reduction by ploughing, it remains impressive. Covers a smaller area than the nearby Tolly Barrow, but is in much better state of preservation. The two barrows are intervisible.
