Whitsbury Down Long Barrow

Long Barrow


In an area of several Long barrows you may think you are in Wiltshire, rather than Hampshire. The parish of Whitsbury was part of Wiltshire until 1895, and is still under a Wiltshire parliamentary constituency. This barrow seems to be the most accessible. The fantastic ‘Hampshire Treasures’ resource gives the following info – “Whitsbury Down. 60 m long and 30 m wide. Surrounded by a ditch. In exceptionally good condition. Scheduled Ancient Monument no.448” pure joy Posted by pure joy
