Round Barrow(s)


Visited 20.4.13

Despite my earlier failure to find the Barrow I can now report success!
(Don’t know how I managed to miss it the first time)

The Barrow is easy enough to find.

Take the B4245 south off the busy A45 (near Newport) and then turn right into Underwood. This is a modern housing complex and operates a one-way system. Head for the leisure centre (closed) and there is room to park near the locked gates.

Walk past the gate and around the back of the leisure centre towards the children’s play area. The Barrow can be seen as a low, ploughed down ‘mound’.
Unless you were looking for it specifically you probably wouldn’t know it was there.
Still, in this part of the world, the fact it has survived at all is a bonus.

Not really worth the effort of a visit unless you are in the area and desperate for something ‘old’!
