Fields should not be this muddy at this time of year (august 07) but that aside, I was well surprised to see that this has its own little fógra. I'd say this is a bowl barrow, but with very little evidence of a ditch. It's about 10 metres in diameter and rises to about 2 and a half metres high. Most of the views surrounding here are blocked by field boundaries and trees. ryaner Posted by ryaner
