Priddy Nine Barrows

Barrow / Cairn Cemetery

Folklore

Apparently a golden coffin is said to be buried in one of the many barrows in the parish of Priddy.

Is the mystery about which barrow part of the story? I don't know as I haven't read the original article (Notes and Queries S. D (Somerset?) 16 (1920) p298), only its mention by Mr Grinsell on p31 of 'Barrow Treasure, in Fact, Tradition, and Legislation', in Folklore, Vol. 78, No. 1. (Spring, 1967), pp. 1-38.
