Craw Howe



Near the airport but one for the yompers this. Coming from this direction I tried the field to the left of the cottage but found it to be waterlogged ground crisscrossed by ground water. So I made it through the waste ground to the right. Still one for the welly brigade perhaps as there was boggy bits and the very rough pasture on the way consists of large tussocks jostling for position. Not much further down the road is a Nissen hut and I would advise visitors to go by the track alongside this and the strike across for the howe.

Craw Howe is the mound just behind the pool extending to the fence crossing the right-hand end. Maybe the two other mounds are part of the hill one sees too. Probably not really worth all that effort as very little sense can be made of it. There are obvious signs of prior excavation/s and some of the stones on top are of recent origin.
