Thorswood nature reserve has it's own carpark and wooden posts showing the way round .
Three barrows all intervisible occupy the hilltop varying in size from a small bump just 2 ft tall to a bigun about 8-10 ft tall (in the same field as the bigun a small probable barrow hides in the corner)
In the woods is a barrow lookalike but its too perfect and has a stone built barred well ,deep too.
Great views north in to the Peak district and south across Staffordshire
