Round Barrow(s)


Visited 13.11.11

I parked in the large car park used by walkers and the model aircraft club (several of which were flying their planes) and walked across the road for a closer look at this strangely named Barrow. The Barrow is easily seen from the lane.

I jumped over the locked field gate and was soon stood on top of the Barrow. There are indeed splendid views to be had down the valley.
The Barrow is about 25 metres across and 1 metre high.

Right in the middle of the Barrow was a large hole made by some animal or other – perhaps a badger's sett? I wasn't going to stick my arm in to find out!
