Whitnell Corner

Barrow / Cairn Cemetery


Visited 30.3.13

To the west of Binegar, either side of the B3139

I observed both Barrows from the side of the road.

The Barrow immediately to the south of the road is no more than a small grass covered mound. It looked smaller to me that what E.H. state. Either it has since been ploughed out or I was looking at the wrong thing!

E.H. state: ‘A mound 35m in diameter and 2.15m high’.

The Barrow to the north of the road was much easier to spot.
The grass covering this Barrow has been worn away on one side and appeared brown and bare.
E.H. state:
‘A flat topped mound 18m in diameter and 2m high’

Worth a quick look when driving down the road but not much more than that.
