Long Barrow


Bit more detail on how to get to Lanhill Longbarrow. Heading west out of Chippenham along the A420, there are two entrances to the site. The first is almost directly opposite the right-hand turning for Yatton Keynell and Castle Combe. The entrance leads across a cattle grid to a metalled road beyond. To get to the barrow, turn immediately right into the nearby field and carry on into the second field, where you'll see the barrow's distinctive hump. The second entrance is further along the A420. It's less conspicuous but leads over a stile and directly into the barrow field. Anyone who wants to 'enjoy the atmosphere' should be more discrete than we were. Apologies to the couple who had walked four miles to get there, only to promply flee after stumbling upon us... Posted by monoman
