Wardstone Barrow

Round Barrow(s)


This barrow lies on the crest of a hill a few hundred metres from the coast. It's a bit scruffy and covered in nettles and brambles. It is 15 metres in diameter and 1 1/2 metres in height.
It was excavated in1867 and a cremation in an upright late Bronze Age urn with a flat stone on top of it was found, but has since sadly been destroyed in a fire.
