Bush Barrow

Round Barrow(s)


A trip to the museum in Devizes is really worthwhile to see the fantastic artefacts pinched from this barrow by Colt-Hoare - the gold* lozenge / buckle and beads and a mace and many other beautifully crafted things from this and other barrows on Salisbury Plain. There's an old (but clear) exhibit on the development of stonehenge, and some Neolithic axes upstairs too. The opening times are:

Opening Hours: 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday to Saturday 12 noon - 4.00 pm Sunday.
Admission free on Sundays & Mondays, chargeable on other days.

*well. They might be replicas actually. But they're still nice if so.
