Clyro Court Farm

Long Barrow


Visited on Friday 3rd June, 2005.

Landowner friendly (ish) and happy to let me go and have a look for as long as I want - I imagine he would be happy for responsible adults to do as I did.

Mound seems to be aligned as Elderford says and is about 30 paces in length. A few slabs visible but much disturbed and covered in nettles at the western end, it took a while to get a picture in my minds eye of how it would have looked. This tomb would have been clearly visible to people travelling along the bottom of the Wye Valley.

There is a sunken track to the east of the mound behind the farm house which leads down to the valley bottom - I have no idea of its age.

It's a comfortable 20 minute walk from Hay on Wye where you might be able to find a book that will tell you more, and if yr interested in Roman stuff there's a fort about half way between the two.

Have taken some pictures but as yet haven't figured out how to put them on the site (and haven't developed them yet either).

Clyro Court Farm is almost opposite Baskerville Hall Hotel.
