Soldier's Grave

Round Cairn


About a hundred yards north of Nympsfield long barrow, this seems to be largely ignored by visitors. I visited on 26.4.09 and despite the number of cars and people about, no-one else came this way while I was there.

As you enter the wood from the direction of the long barrow, you're confronted with this large round barrow almost immediately. Rather like the largest of Emma's Grove round barrows, this is a big old thing. It's surrounded by trees, which cut off any views to the west. Worth a quick look if you're in the area.

From here I headed back east to Buckholt Wood, which is a short walk and scramble away.
