Wears Hill

Round Barrow(s)


Visited 14.10.12

Access is easy enough from the small parking area for Abbotsbury Castle Hillfort.

There are three Barrows to explore which are only a short distance from the car park.

The first Barrow is well mangled (technical term!) and stands next to a small derelict building of some sort. It is also close to a metal fire beacon which looks like one of those to mark the millennium? 2 huge toadstools grew nearby.

The second Barrow is approximately 1m high x 10m across and has been dug into.
It is covered in the dreaded gorse.

The third Barrow as also approx 1m x 10m and has again been dug into.
This is the best of the bunch; easy to see from a distance and covered in grass.

It is well worth the short walk to visit these Barrows when visiting the nearby Hillfort.
Great views can be had of Chesil Beach.
