Whitestown Farm

Barrow / Cairn Cemetery


‘Drive by’ 30.3.13


We were heading home after a fairly successful days ‘Barrow hunting’ and I was dozing in the front of the car trying to catch some well needed shut eye as I was still not feeling too good.

All of a sudden Dafydd shouts out ‘Barrow!’
I opened my eyes and asked ‘where?’
‘There’ says Dafydd pointing out of the window.

Sure enough, in the middle of a field to the left of the road was a large grass covered Barrow!

E.H. state:
‘A bowl barrow located on level ground 610m NW of Whitestown Farm. It is visible as a mound 30m in diameter and 3m high’

‘Well done!’ I congratulated Dafydd

I don’t suppose there are many 5 year olds who would even know what a Barrow was – never mind spot one when driving past!

He was duly rewarded when Sophie later spotted an ice cream van!
