This is a very large long barrow sited a few hundred yards north of Bincombe bumps. It is behind a dry stone wall and is in excellent condition, with no signs of excavation or ploughing. It is not easy to photograph at this time of the year due to the crops in the surrounding fields, and the fact that is behind a dry stone wall. formicaant Posted by formicaant
