The Tump

Round Barrow(s)


Visited 13.8.11

An easier site to access than I was expecting.
Just west of the delightful town of Stow On The Wold there is plenty of room to park on the verge (where the trees end). There was a convenient gap in the wall and a 5 minute walk around the side of the field takes you to the Barrow.

The Barrow is covered with trees although I was able to see several largish stones lying scattered on top. The top of the Barrow has a hollow where no doubt someone has dug into it in the past looking for treasure!
The Barrow itself is oval shaped, approximately 1 metre high x 15 metres x 20 metres.

Worth a look when in the area.
