Round Barrow(s)


Visited 5.9.2009 after having a look at Norbury and Farmington long barrow. Leaving Farmington village by the road going NE from the village green, past a stone lined spring/sheep wash giving the nearby wood the name of Washpool Wood, the barrow is just off the road on the right hand side.

Someone in the area obviously has a trespass phobia and virtually every gate I passed between the village and here had a "no right of way" sign on it. The one next to the barrow was no different. Still, the barrow is clearly visible from the road, and is crowned with a mature sycamore tree. It's a reasonable size, a metre tall (after Farmington and Hampnett barrows this constituted a major find!).

From here it's off to Wins Barrow, further to the NE on Bourton Hill.
