History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
When the site was excavated in the early 20th century the bones of 22 people were found. These remains can now be seen at the Maidstone Museum.
The nearest car park is at Trottiscliffe, about 1/2 mile away, and footpaths lead to the site, which is accessible at any time. Fencing has been erected to prevent people from climbing on the stones, but you can approach quite close to the barrow.
