Uffington Castle Round Barrow

Round Barrow(s)


Uffington Tumulus

Had a good look for this tumulus when visiting Uffington Castle this afternoon.
Although it is clearly marked on the O.S. map between the hillfort and the white horse, finding it on the ground was a little disappointing.
Standing less than a meter high, the barrow is easily missed when walking north towards the white horse, and even when identified, didn't seem to amount to much. All I can say is that its position on the crest of the hill was probably pronounced when first constructed.
