Round Barrow(s)


Just south of the B3224 - east out of Wheddon Cross.
I parked in the convenient car park opposite (Kennisham Forestry Commission).
I then crossed over the road and walked south down the lane past the Goosemoor Cross – situated at the cross roads.
A short distance down the lane you come to a metal field gate on your left.
The Barrow is easily visible from the gate.

I hopped over the gate and walked over to the Barrow. It is approximately 1 metre high and 20 metres across. The western section being cut through by a hedgerow.

I startled a bird of prey that flew effortlessly up into the deep blue sky – a lovely sight. There is not much else I can add about the Barrow except to say that other than the bit damaged by the hedgerow it seems to be in pretty good condition.

Worth a quick look when in the area.
