Drove through the very pretty Wyck Rissington afterwards.squeegs02/04/2017
The 65 mile linear Oxfordshire Way passes this summit during its first 6 miles whilst still in Gloucestershire having climbed up to Wyck Beacon from the start in Bourton on The Water. To the south the former Little Rissington RAF airfield has a significant military history - Central Flying School was based here as were the Red Arrows (and their predessors - The Red Pelicans !?) and the USAF with their giant C5 transport aircraft.Chris Pearson17/02/2017

Parked in lane with short walk across field.Ramblingpaul21/08/2016
Bit of a bonus - on the way to holiday cottage in the Cotswolds when I noticed that there was a Tump nearby. My wife pulled up rather awkwardly in the nearby road junction whilst I bagged it. As others have said, it's a pretty flat summit.wheresthepath28/05/2016
From roadside over fence to copse & trig, then along road & down Oxfordshire Way to Wyck Rissington then Bourton on the Water for ice cream by the river. V hot & sunny afternoon.apricorum12/05/2016
Another side of the road job as there were still (wet)standing crops in the field.heavyhorses20/08/2015
As others, across field to HPPeterD07/06/2015
Almost a roadside tump, hop over a b/w fence and across a muddy arable field. Obvious HP on a tumulus, shared with 3 mature trees and a trig pillar.jonglew10/02/2015

ackward barbed wire fence to access fieldAdrian15/06/2013
Visited while doing field work in the Slaughters. The top wire of the fence is fairly slack so all but the shortest should be able to step over to gain access to the barrow. Still patches of snow in April.Herbert Anchovy05/04/2013
walk with steve and Maddy from Bourton on the waternell158301/03/2013
Easy parking. Summit could be anywhere as fairly flat. Highest point probably the trig point almost on top of the tumulus. Gate, barbed wire on top, just near the T junction.destaylor28/02/2013
Almost dark, needed flash to take photo of trig pillar. Dark useful too for this short trespass across field to small knoll with clump, as very visible from nearby businesses and road. Easy roadside parking, barded wire fence less easy.Hillsidenick17/11/2012

Walk up from Bourton via Little Rissington. On the summit is a fine bronze age barrow, under trees. Fence is not easy and field is cropped.thesweetcheat09/01/2012
