Round Barrow(s)


This named barrow is, according to the NMR, a 'prominent landmark' (it's right by the road so should be easy to spot - though I've been along here many times and never had my eyes open for it) and stands "to a height of 2.6m with a maximum diameter of 35m. A hollow on the eastern side is thought to be the result of an unrecorded 'antiquarian' excavation. A letter from W G Clarke to Cyril Fox, dated 1923, stated that `a cinerary urn has been found there and broken up'." Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
