Buck's Head Barrow

Round Barrow(s)


Viewed from road (B4070 near Keeper's Lodge) 15.2.2009 as part of visit to West Tump. The barrow is of a large diameter - 25 paces according to Grinsell and O'Neil, but very ploughed down, reducing the height to a metre or less.

One for the very keen.

The even more ploughed down remains of two further round barrows are (barely) visible in a ploughed field to the SE near Climperwell Farm (SO916119). For the very, very keen.

I did see some deer in the nearby Hazel Hanger Wood though, which made the walk worthwhile!
