Visited 25.11.12

We parked near the Lodge and I quickly headed up the muddy track which runs past the property.

My O/S map showed 4 Barrows here although I only achieved partial success in spotting them.

The easiest Barrow to spot is the one to the left of the track – opposite the Lodge.
It is in woodland and is approx 2m high x 20m across.

The Barrow behind the Lodge I couldn’t see due to out buildings / sheds etc which hid it from view.

The Barrow on the opposite side of the road is again in dense woodland and is now only a low mound – approx 1m high x 10m across.

I didn’t have time to look for the Barrow further up the track, also amongst trees.

All in all a bit of a disappointing visit.

Visited this site whilst on trip to Quarley hill. I found 5 Bowl Barrows in total but there are 12. They vary in Height from about 0.5 to 3 meters. Most are covered in scrub but are near to the Cholderton Road or the footpath to the Lodge so are easy to access. There are 2 more to be found in the garden of a private house one of which looks like a disc barrow in the aerial photos. A nice site in an area full of prehistory on the edge of Salisbury Plain ginger tt Posted by ginger tt
