Swinburne Terraces

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


Visited 20.9.10
You can't fail to see this site when making your way to the Great Swinburne standing stone.
As you walk down the path towards the stone, the large terracing is along the bank on your left. Must say that they looked like medieval strip lynchets to me.
Perhaps more interesting are the two fairly well preserved Barrows right next to the same path at the bottom of the hill near the metal gate. They are only a short distance apart and are well worth having a look when visiting the standing stone / terraces.
