This is quite an out of the way spot, but what a revelation once you get there .Getting there isn't particularly difficult with an o.s. map , as it's all on public foot paths.The route I took up here takes you past the remains of the earthworks of the roman aqueduct into Dorchester. The alternative name for this place is the seven barrows , at first I could only see six , and indeed could only photograph six. Four of the six visible are similar sized , with two low bowl types .The seventh barrow is in dense undergrowth in an adjacent copse , I could see it through the trees , it is of a similar size to the four bowl barrows I did take pictures of. This place is off the beaten track and I had it completely to myself , to the north can be seen the high chalk downland , which contains sites of ancient settlement , some of which I will walk again soon and put on T.M.A.
Very close to these barrows is The New Barn Field Centre , which has a reconstruction of an Iron age round house and gives demonstrations of ancient pottery making.
