Shawswell Farm

Long Barrow


Walked here from Boy's Grove round barrow. Access is from the south, up the side of a valley that's wet with springs. Typical Cotswold long barrow position, on the side of a hill rather than on the top.

This one has been seriously reduced over the years, to the point where it appears to be two separate mounds. The larger part is very reminiscent of Lineover long barrow a few miles to the north of here. Total length is around 40 metres, but height (even of the larger mound) is only a little more than a metre.

Off to Bagendon earthworks from here.
