Rod and line in cart (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

barrow

Here is my best explanation:

'cart' is the definition.

(barrow is a kind of cart)

'rod and line' is the subsidiary indication.

'rod' becomes 'bar' (I've seen this before).

'and' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'line' becomes 'row' (row is a kind of line**).

'bar'+'row'='barrow'

'in' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for barrow that I've seen before include "Small cart with two wheels, or old burial mound", "Cart; tumulus", "Burial mound; handcart", "Garden cart", "Small cart for a prehistoric burial mound", "Cart for carrying small loads", "Ancient burial mound", "Handcart; burial mound", "One-wheeled handcart" and "Small cart with two wheels for carrying things".)
