Council Barrow

Round Barrow(s)


Visited 20.4.12

Although looking at the map it appears the minor lane next to the Barrow joins the main A30 it doesn’t, it is fenced off, so the only way to the Barrow is via the lanes from the west as described in the previous field notes. O/S map required!

Access to the Barrow is no more than a quick hop over a locked metal field gate and a very short walk. The gorse covered Barrow is easily seen from the lane if climbing over gates isn’t your thing!
The Barrow is approx 2.5m high x 20m across. As I say, the Barrow is covered in gorse so close inspection is not possible.

A Barrow visit for the dedicated only.
