Drive-by 1.8.15

Directions:
On the A171 between Ugthorpe and Aislaby.


Despite being right next to the road (northern side) I couldn't see either of these two barrows due to a large covering of chest high gorse and fern.

E.H. state (Lady Cross barrow):
The barrow is an earthen mound 1.2m high and 14m in diameter. In the centre of the barrow is a hollow caused by previous excavations.

Dun Bogs barrow: The barrow is an earth and stone mound 1m high x 12m in diameter. In the centre of the mound is a hollow caused by excavations in the past.
