Visit the site regularly seems to be on a Ley line, also one visit I stood on top and had a sense of tingling and power generating up through my feet and out of the top of my head. Asked the wife to come up on top of the mound and she described the same sensation. Another visit and we stood again on top of the Barrow , a Hare meandered up to the top of the Tump and stopped between me and the wife, looked towards Beeston Castle, at us and then ambled off in no hurry across the field nearby, it kept stopping and looking back as if to check we were still transfixed with gobs open in amazement. Last time a Raven sat in one of the trees and only shut up when we got to the top of the Tump it was given some of me butties and again was extremely tame. Magical place, pity the townies next to it cant seem to stop chucking crap over the fence onto it. Posted by cooper

a small lane comes off the A51 in Tilstone Fearnall and as the lane turns a corner a large barrow stands .Iv'e been down the A51 hundreds of times and didnot know it was here till i read a book on prehistoric Cheshire. Glad I did too the barrow is 7-9 ft tall and on its summit a plaque saying dont harm the monument stood,till my daughter tried to balance on it and it fell flat. postman Posted by postman
