Upper Swell

Long Barrow


The last long barrow on my walk today (6.3.2009), I arrived from Pole's Wood South at a fair clip, as the shooting around me made lingering not seem like an attractive option. Following the main path eastwards through the wood, startling yet more deer and pheasants as I went, the barrow is an obvious mound on the south side of the path. It seems to be intact, a nice smooth whale-back with no obvious excavation scars. However, it is covered in a thick layer of leaves and I wasn't hanging around to investigate further.

From here I joined the road to Upper Swell and made my way the couple of miles to Condicote Henge.
