Wyke Green Farm

Round Barrow(s)


Visited 11.2.13

Take the A272 west out of Petersfield and take the turning right for Froxfield Green and then High Cross. Drive through the hamlet (past the church) and the Barrows are in a field on your left – opposite Wyke Green Farm.

My O/S map shows one and a ‘half’ Barrows in the field.
The reason for the ‘half’ is that its southern half has been cut through by the road.

I looked for the Barrows over the hedge but couldn’t make them out for sure.
The ‘half’ Barrow was probably hidden by the hedge (if it is still there) and I think I saw the other Barrow covered in trees and undergrowth.
I cannot for sure say this was the Barrow and perhaps it was ‘natural’?
If it wasn’t the Barrow then I couldn’t spot that one either.

E.H. has nothing to say about these Barrows.
