Round Hill Mound

Artificial Mound


Visited 13.11.11

I approached the site from the minor road off the A417 to the east of Wantage.
Where the road takes a sharp turn to the left there is just about room to park.
On such a lovely day it was perhaps not surprising to see so many people out and about walking / cycling etc.

I headed west towards Wantage along the narrow tarmac path and soon came to the 'mound'. The 'mound' being right next to the path, the other side of a muddy ditch.
There is not much to see – just a 'mound' covered in bushes / trees / brambles etc.
It could be a Barrow (it looks the right shape) but there again what do I know?

In truth there is little to recommend a visit.
