Duck's Nest

Long Barrow


A fantastic name for an overgrown long barrow - it's also known as 'Duke's Rest' locally. Sited conspicuously on an eminence of Rockbourne Down, it's intervisible with Grans Barrow, Knap Barrow, and a longbarrow on Little Toyd Down. There is also a group of round barrows half a mile to the north. To the northwest there are traces of an Iron Age settlement and 'Celtic' fields - an area full of interest!
