Farrell, T., 1985, Barrows on Horridge Moor (Correspondence). SDV344299.

Site visited during May 1985. Barrow about 23 metres in diameter, 0.5 metres high. Recently ploughed. Farrell believed this site to be the barrow at SS70101614 (barrow 'b' on schedule) but the description is almost certainly of this barrow.
