Situated just below Ridge hill , with Maiden castle to the north east , this is almost certainly the only quadruple barrow in Britain. They are all the same size and are very close together , Grinsell says they share a common ditch , I couldn't see this as there was a crop in the field. Just north of the four is another large , low round barrow with what appears to be a small standing stone next to it.
This quadruple barrow is only a few hundred metres west of a unique bell/disc barrow at the top of Gould's hill.
