Mottistone Down Barrows (Barrow / Cairn Cemetery) by A R Cane A small ring of stones set into the top of one of the largest barrows, the 'Harboro'. Nice touch, but not ancient! These were placed here in WW2, I believe, when this spot was an Observation Post. There's also a lump of concrete sticking out of the south eastern edge which may have been part of a larger structure.
