Money Tump

Round Barrow(s)


Westwood and Simpson ('Lore of the land' -2005) mention a tale collected in 1985 by the Cotswold writer Edith Brill. She spoke to an old man who said "he wished he could borrow a bulldozer and search for the money that lay hidden inside [the tump] and then he would be rich for the rest of his life." She herself 'knew' that the money originated from a wealthy local chief who'd left it there while fleeing the Saxons. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
