John Denham's epic poem Cooper's Hill speaks of a long lost era...whilst not exactly being "megalithic"....but worth a trudge through none-the-less!

Thanks for that Mr R. Found the poem here -

This bit in the commentary may also be of interest -

"The speaker stands on the top of Cooper’s Hill, which, like the nearby St. Anne’s Hill, overlooks the extensive water-meadows known as Egham Mead, through which the river Thames flows on its way to London and the sea."

Strangely enough there is another Cooper's Hill in Surrey probably also the same distance from London....this other one is close to Bletchingley, quite an impressive mound too...has a "man-made" look about it when viewed from the M23...but not so unnatural looking from atop it....(yes I've climbed it,there is a public footway...before anyone asks!!) and you can see Bletchingley castle and Cissbury Ring quite clearly from it.
