Lady Low

Round Barrow(s)


After finding myself, literally, we waded through the cows at the top of the hill, untill one stood resolutely still before us, Eric said "that is one big cow, look at the ring through its nose".
"Erm.....I dont think that ones a cow mate, lets go this way"
After climbing nimbly over the fence, presumably at the spot we are supposed to, as there is no barbed wire and steps (but not a stile), the first thing that one notices is the view, it's not the best one the Peak has to offer but its not the worst. The second is the rocky outcrop, and then the barrow, Lady low.
I was pleasantly surprised to find it still quite tall, nearly two metres, but it has the summit scooped as so many have. What can one say about a robbed barrow called lady, lets go with..... He's all take and no give.
A good view down to the Bullring henge from here, but it would have been better from Cow low, curse my muddy mind, and its still a fair old walk to Castle Naze. I dare not tell Eric how far Ive already given him one piggy back ride which quickly drooped into a crawl, giddy up dad.
