Mynydd Herbert

Round Barrow(s)


Set upon Mynydd Herbert to the approx north-west of the Tythegston long cairn, this Bronze Age round barrow is well seen from the earlier monument. In fact it crowns the horizon so perfectly when viewed from the Neolithic capstone - unlike from many other directions (although I haven't tried them all, I must admit) - that one is encouraged to believe the later barrow was specifically sited with this primary attribute in mind? If so, what continuity this represents!

According to our friends at Coflein this site, unfortunately located a little to the south of the busy A48, is:

"A round barrow, 20m in diameter [RCAHMW J.Wiles 03.12.02]"
