Hitter Hill



Jewitt and Lucas excavated/dug the cairn in the 1840's and discovered 4 rock cut graves and 4 cists....Two of these contained burials along with food vessels, flints and an axe hammer. (Finds J.Barnatt's & J. Collis' "Barrow Corpus")

Today, Glutton Bridge below Hitter Hill is also the best place to pick up the 'double sunset' behind Chrome Hill. This happens a few weeks either side of 21st June.
