We had seen this barrow across the field on an autumn walk a couple of years back, but never got any closer. It's not the most impressive of barrows, low and ploughed down. But it has the inevitable scooped depression in its top, indicating that excavation took place at some point. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

A quick look at this little-known barrow after visiting Carn Bean. Not much to see, just a small grass-covered, ploughed down mound - just like being back in the Cotswolds! thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
