Round Barrow(s)


Half a mile east of Rhayader on the north side of the A44 is this large conifer coated heavily eroded barrow, it's about fifty yards from the road, not much parking there except on grassy sloping verge, or in front of the gate.
A large grassy mound about a meter and a half tall, by many meters across, time hasn't kept this barrow well, it's well spread out.
No gate to speak of, it was either very open or not there at all, I didn't notice because my gaze was being held by the big old barrow.
As far as incidental barrows go these were quite good, I was just passing through saw them on the map and just had stop and take a minute.
