Lower Swell

Long Barrow


Visited 13.8.11

A very easy site to access.

Park in the hamlet of Lower Swell (near the Whittlestone), climb over the wooden field gate and follow the grass path straight to the Long Barrow – 5 minute walk.
The part of the field where the Barrow lives is not cultivated and is completely covered in trees / bushes and chest high nettles.
In fact the nettles prevented me from actually getting onto the Long Barrow so a settled for a view from the edge of the field.
This is a good sized Long Barrow – one of the best sites I visited today.

Well worth a visit after enjoying a cream tea in Stow On The Wold!
