    Did you turn the barrow upside down?

    Anyway, if you can unbolt the wheels, legs, just use the bucket...upside-down.

    hmm ok, see your quest;
    bricks and old wood is 1st thought, or build a mud jump somewhere
    can't think of anything else really, old road signs might be an idea - but need some support......

    Bricks are not cinder blocks. Cinder blocks are generally a bit taller and lighter, but take up more base area, thus making them more stable.

    At least the ones at my house were.
