Pound Hill

Barrow / Cairn Cemetery


This site is on a hill to the north of the village of Winterbourne Abbas. I saw`and photographed 2 bowl barrows, M.A.G.I.C. shows another bowl and a long barrow neither of which I could see. The long barrow was disputed by L.V.Grinsell when he visited the site, he thought it was twin bowl barrows whose definition had been reduced by ploughing. I wasn't looking for this today and it may well still exist, I'll have another look soon.
Both the bowl barrows appeared in reasonable condition and were to the west of the public footpath.
