Just a couple of hundred yards down the road from the destroyed henge, is this apparently well preserved round barrow, with what we may take as a mature Broad Oak tree growing out of it.
With the big posh farm and the whir of a quad bike nearby I settled for a gander from the road. it didn't half behoove me but settle I did.
