Dirty Mount

Round Barrow(s)


Second only to Slap Bottom in the Southern Silly Names League, once I'd spotted this on the map I had to visit really. Now that I've done so, I don't suggest you try to follow. It is pretty inaccessible for this part of the country! Parnholt Wood is gorgeous and well worth a visit but is just over the geological boundary into acidic, sandy soil (viz New Forest) with bogs and badass bracken everywhere. So don't stray off the rights of way kids. One noticeable thing about this barrow though is how its ditch has survived reasonably well. In these parts, ditches tend to have been silted up and ploughed over. UncleRob Posted by UncleRob
