These two long barrows are about a hundred yards apart. They are in good condition and are large in size. Slightly to the north of the eastern most barrow is a small low round barrow. Although it can be seen, the nearby settlement site is very overgrown at the moment and probably needs to be seen in winter. formicaant Posted by formicaant

Two long barrows in good condition, one of which appears to be overlaying the Dorset Cursus. Very close by is a settlement which now largely appears only as a crop / parch mark. formicaant Posted by formicaant
