I had no idea there were Barrows on top of Kings Weston Hill when I visited the Hillfort.

The first I knew of them was when reading the information board near the top of the steps leading to the Hillfort.

The information board states the Barrows are now ‘barely discernable’.
Although they are either side of the path running across the hilltop I couldn’t make them out.
I can’t remember if the information board said there were 2 or 3 Barrows here.

A map on the information board shows their location.
