|English Heritage ecologist cut the grass on the barrow once a year in August because the site cover is 'relict limestone grassland', increasingly rare in the Cotswolds owing to the ecological wasteland of modern agriculture. It certainly is a tiny haven for butterflies and wild flowers, but a pity that one of the few publicly accessible sites in the area appears so overgrown. Information about this at the site would be helpful in appreciating it.
