Bul Barrow

Round Barrow(s)


Bul barrow or Bulbarrow as it is locally known sits atop a high ridge of hills in mid Dorset. While not overly impressive in itself, having the appearance of a bowl barrow, it must be one of the highest in Dorset. Nearby is Rawlsbury hillfort and parts of a WW2 radar station including a mast and huts which are now a sawmill. Thomas Hardy mentions it in Tess of the D'Uurbeville's and gives the alternative name Bealbury, but this could be his own invention. formicaant Posted by formicaant
