Southern Henge Barrow (Round Barrow(s)) — Fieldnotes

'Visited' 24.9.10.
Where the Barrow is supposed to be there is a long line of fir trees. I snooped about the trees as best I could but could see no sign of a Barrow. If it was the other side of the trees it has been completely ploughed out.

As expected nothing at all to see other than a grass field.

Looked for Barrow but could see no trace – ploughed out?

Three Hills (Barrow / Cairn Cemetery) — Fieldnotes

Visited 24.9.10
The Barrows were easy enough to see as they were grassy islands in a sea of ploughed earth. I viewed from the field edge as I didn't fancy getting covered in mud. The Barrows appeared to be approximately 0.5 metres high.

Rush Wood Round Barrow (Round Barrow(s)) — Fieldnotes

Visited 24.9.10
Despite the fierce wind (and it starting to pour down half way across the field – no coat!) I stuck at it and after a 15 minute walk I was 'rewarded' with a patch of ground chest high in grass. I could just about make out a small mound but certainly not worth getting soaked for. The rest of the field had been ploughed. There is a public right of way to the site starting at the minor road next to what appeared to be a new build house. Don't be put off but the start of the walk is up the house drive!

Centre Hill Barrow (Round Barrow(s)) — Fieldnotes

'Visited' 24.9.10
Now I am not sure BUT I think I saw this Barrow from the top Of Thornborough Henge central. There was a low mound covered with grass in an otherwise ploughed field. If not, it must have been a natural 'lump / bump'?
It was certainly in the right place.
