Skellaw Hill

Round Barrow(s)


I couldn't help but feel some small disappointment when we finally realised that the low hump at the top of the field was indeed the place we were looking for.

Maybe its something to do with the rather OTT name (Hill of Skulls???) but once you wander up the field and stand on top of what remains, the beauty of the vista before you and the fact that you can see both the Goggelby Stone and the site of the Thunder Stone make up for the initial reaction.

I would recommend walking between the 3 sites (and Asper's Field) to get sense of the landscape.
