Barrow Hill (Worcestershire)

Round Barrow(s)

Fieldnotes

Visited 30.3.11
There was room to pull over on the grass verge at the turning to Broom Hill, just south of the Village of Drayton. There before me stood Barrow Hill – one of the largest Barrows I have ever seen. So far so good.
Then the problem. The Barrow is on private land and it is clear the owner wants to keep it private. Although a bridleway runs to the south of the Barrow, the field in which it stands is surrounded by tall hedges and a barbed wire fence. Normally I would hop over this fairly easily but it was in a poor state and rocking from side to side – making it impossible to cross.
I therefore had to content myself with a view from the road.
As I said, this Barrow is huge and is covered with mature trees.
Worth a look when in the area.
