Denbury Hillfort round barrows

Round Barrow(s)


Visited 5.5.11
The two Barrows in the middle of the Hillfort are quite easy to spot despite the area being overgrown with ferns and brambles.
Walking in an anti-clockwise direction around the inner bank of the Hillfort, the first Barrow you come to is next to the path. It is about 2.5 metres high x 15 metres x 10 metres.
The second Barrow is only 20 metres away and is about 1.5 metres high x 20 metres x 20 metres. This is the Barrow which has the standing stone poking out the top – about 2ft x 1ft x 8 inches – covered in moss and surrounded by ferns.
