Rillaton Barrow

Round Barrow(s)


You can't really beat the King's collar-stud holder anecdote for a good story connected with the Rillaton barrow ( the cup was claimed as Duchy Treasure Trove to William IV and remained in the royal household until King George V died - he kept it on his dressing table).

Leslie Grinsell visited the site and spoke to some boys who lived nearby - they said they knew the barrow as 'King Arthur's Grave' (this from his 1936 'Ancient Burial Mounds of England).
