Margery Bower

Round Barrow(s)


This is a nice spot...on a steep sided hillside south of Ashbourne overlooking the river Henmoor. Fine views out over Ashbourne to the hills of Bunster and Thorpe Cloud at the mouth of Dove Dale.

The O.S map marks the mound as a tumulus, although John Barnatt notes it as only a possible example in his 'Barrow Corpus'. There are no recorded excavations.
