This is a great place to visit – and so easy to access.
There is a Tesco directly opposite the Barrows which you can park in or if that is full, do what we did and park in the hotel car park next door!
There is an information board which states that in 1819 there were 17 Barrows here.
Besides the 3 obvious Barrows I was able to spot the slight mound of a 4th.
The 3 large Barrows are approximately 1m x 20m, 1.5m x 20m and the largest being 2.5m x 30m – this is the Barrow which has the ditch running around it.
As has been previously stated there are great costal views to be had.
It does seem a little strange however to have a Barrow cemetery in the middle of a seaside resort!
I would heartily recommend a visit to this site when visiting Newquay.
