North Down

Barrow / Cairn Cemetery


'Drive by' - 27.8.12

I spotted nine of the Barrows making up the cemetery whilst driving north along the very busy A361.

Four were on the brow of the hill, one south of a copse of trees and four in a line right next to the road.

Time was against us and parking is difficult on this stretch of road so I settled for a view from afar. To be honest, the four Barrows closest to the road are very easily seen and gives as good a view as you are likely to get.

I hope to visit the Barrows on top of the hill on a future visit but will approach from the other side of the hill - via Cherhill and Oldbury Hillfort.
