Uffington Castle Long Mound

Long Barrow


Uffington Long mound

Made a point of looking for this feature, along with its neighbouring tumulus, when visiting Uffington Castle this afternoon.
Marked on the O.S. map between the hillfort and the white horse, this mound is easily missed unless you where dogged enough to hunt it out.
It would appear that the mound has not been reinstated since it's excavation in 1857/1993 and it's original shape and height would have been considerably larger. Hard to believe that 46 bodies have been unearthed here.
