This barrow is a well-defined one with a clear bank and fosse all around it. The centre is starting to get covered with gorse bushes, so who knows how long it will be visible.
The bank is 1m high and the ditch is over 1m wide. The central area is raised above the level of the ground around the monument. The overall diameter is about 12m, while the inner platform is a little under 10m or so across.
On a clear day barrow V would be visible on the near skyline to the south.
This is an explanation of (and a bit of a disclaimer for) the coordinates I provide.
Where a GPS figure is given this is the master for all other coordinates. According to my Garmin these are quite accurate.
Where there is no GPS figure the 6 figure grid reference is master for the others. This may not be very accurate as it could have come from the OS maps and could have been read by eye. Consequently, all other cordinates are going to have inaccuracies.
The calculation of Longitude and Latitude uses an algorithm that is not 100% accurate. The long/lat figures are used as a basis for calculating the UTM & ITM coordinates. Consequently, UTM & ITM coordinates are slightly out.
UTM is a global coordinate system - Universal Transverse Mercator - that is at the core of the GPS system.
ITM is the new coordinate system - Irish Transverse Mercator - that is more accurate and more GPS friendly than the Irish Grid Reference system. This will be used on the next generation of Irish OS maps.
