Wiveliscombe Barrow

Round Barrow(s)


Visited 19.7.11

My 700th fieldnote!

Another site marked on the O/S map and mentioned on Megalithic.

Parking on this stretch of the B3224 is very difficult and I had to park rather dodgy on the grass verge.
The Barrow is just to the south of the road but I couldn't find any access into the field.
I didn't feel comfortable leaving the car too long where I had parked it and settled for a view of the Barrow through the high hedgerow. Not idea but at least I managed to see it. The Barrow appeared to be approximately 2 metres high x 15 metres across.
The Barrow looked to be in good nick – very similar to the nearby Leather Barrow)

I have indeed!
As for photos at the moment I am unable to post any. I don't have the internet at home, I use the computer in work on my break. I don't have the facility to send photos through the office machines. (Even if I did I wouldn't know how to!). Perhaps one day?
