Gib Hill

Artificial Mound

Fieldnotes

Visited 25.5.13

After leaving the stone circle we headed for the Barrow.
Something no doubt all visitors do.

I didn’t realise until reading the information board that the mound sits on top of a much earlier (2000 years earlier) Long Barrow.
Once it is pointed out you can just about make out some of the contours of the Long Barrow. The Long Barrow being the oldest part of the site.

The weather was beautiful with not a cloud in the sky – as it had been all day.
The views from the top of Gib Hill are extensive.

There are a lot worse final resting places.
