Long Barrow

Avenis (Long Barrow) by thesweetcheat Very poor attempt to photograph the barrow over the fence. The barrow runs along the hedge and can been vaguely seen as a slight rise running from the bottom left of the picture to the middle right, where the hedge obscures it.

Horses not pictured.

Not sure you were in the right field Sweetcheat, it's obvious when you find it. Still quite tall, runs parallel to the road with an obvious forecourt. It's in a great spot, unusually on the side of the hill, in a sort of natural amphitheatre, with great views across the valley towards Frampton Mansell. A savage spot, as holy and enchanted as ere beneath a waning moon was haunted by woman wailing for her daemon lover.... Posted by DrMike
