The two Barrows in the middle of the Hillfort are quite easy to spot despite the area being overgrown with ferns and brambles.
Walking in an anti-clockwise direction around the inner bank of the Hillfort, the first Barrow you come to is next to the path. It is about 2.5 metres high x 15 metres x 10 metres.
The second Barrow is only 20 metres away and is about 1.5 metres high x 20 metres x 20 metres. This is the Barrow which has the standing stone poking out the top – about 2ft x 1ft x 8 inches – covered in moss and surrounded by ferns.

Within the Iron age hillfort at Denbury are two Bronze age round barrows, that pre date the hillfort by at least a 1000 yrs. They are situated to the N/E & S/W of the site . There is a small upright on top of the S/W barrow its unclear if its contemporary with the barrows. Posted by dude from bude
