Tow Barrow

Long Barrow

Tow Barrow (Long Barrow) by Chance Flanking ditches, from which material used to construct the mound was quarried, run parallel to the north and south sides of the mound. These have partly infilled over the years but survive as earthworks 5m wide and 1m deep on the south side and 6m wide and 1.5m deep to the north. These stand out by the different wild growth, nettles and on the barrow, cow parsley.
