Gould's Hill Barrows

Barrow / Cairn Cemetery


There are five barrows in this group , which is part of the Dorset ridgeway chain , including Bronkham hill, Bincombe and Came. These barrows overlook Maiden castle . I am keeping a close eye on the three middle round barrows in this group as they have been ploughed at least once in the last 5 years . According to magic they are scheduled ancient monuments , but I'm not sure who to inform about deliberate damage. They are very easy to see as they are on a "b" road from Weymouth, with a layby right next to them. I have counted the barrows from west to east , the first being the most westerly.The first of this group is a large disc barrow with pronounced outer bank and ditch , the eastern part of the ditch is now only apparent as a crop mark, having long been ploughed out. formicaant Posted by formicaant
