A short distance to the east of the main cluster of Barrows on Hingston Down are two more Barrows.

I only had time to have a look at the one nearest the road. It is approximately 1 metre high and 25 metres across – grass covered. It is easily seen from the road and does not look like it has ever been disturbed.

The second Barrow is slightly south east of the one closest to the road but cannot be seen from the road. The O/S map shows a further Barrow a few hundred yards further to the east of these two. Again, I didn’t have time to investigate.
