Round Barrow(s)


The grid ref for this barrow should be SK153638.

Just a short note to would be barrow botherers, the barrow marked on the map half a mile north west, right next to trig point 374m is apparently not prehistoric but Anglo Saxon. It is worth a visit if you don't mind it's comparative lack of age, it's quite a low barrow but it has a ditch round it, it's a minute from the road, there's a small standing stone? embedded in the wall, good views, Minninglow can be seen on the southern skyline. But it's only fifteen hundred years old or so, still twice as old as Macchu Picchu and Angkor Wat.
