Oak Piece

Long Barrow


Spotted this on the O/S map and found a description of the site on Megalithic.
'Chambered Tomb with badly damaged long mound in Gloucestershire'.

Directions: take the turn off north from the B4077 just before you get to the village of Condicote. Shortly after, pull into the lay by and head through the trees on your left. A 'path' was easy to follow through the trees so someone must be walking here?
Once out of the trees you come to a metal field gate and from here the Long Barrow is easy to spot on the brow of the hill in the middle of the field.

I left Karen to take photos of the flora and fauna in the woods and I headed off across the field.
The Barrow is oval shaped about 1 metre high x 30 metres x 20 metres.
Oddly enough a tree has been planted in each 'corner' – 3 of the trees still had protective fences around them.

Not much else I can add in all honesty but I am glad I stopped by.
