Round Barrow(s)


Rounding off the day following a long overdue visit to Dunraven, I'm sad to report that this poor round barrow has been mutilated almost to the point of destruction. Hey, ho. Bearing in mind the complete lack of protection afforded the monument from the users of the nearby minor road - not to mention reports of the apparent aggressive/ignorant 'attitude' of some local landowners (one of whom, a sour-faced old bint, tried unsuccessfully to force me off the road as we passed) - I guess this is no great surprise.

Nevertheless worth a quick look if/by taking the 'short-cut' across the coastal hills from St Brides Major to Ogmore, via Norton (the site of crop-marks indicating an apparent causewayed enclosure, no less)
