Worgret Heath

Barrow / Cairn Cemetery


This is another heathland barrow cemetery, the third I've visited today. These are the three most accessible on the site and all are in good condition. They vary in size from one of the smallest I've seen anywhere to a 2 1/2 metre high example. They are on a plateau which overlooks the valley of the river Piddle to the north and the Purbeck hills to the south.
There is another set of barrows on a lower slope of the heath to the east which I will try to visit soon.
