Round Barrow(s)


‘Drive by’ 8.9.12

The O/S map shows this Barrow lying right next to a minor road a little east of the village of Brynsiencyn.

This road is very narrow with nowhere to park.
I thought I would try for a ‘drive by’ as in reality there is probably little to see other than the usual ‘bump’ in the field.
However, this even failed me as the hedges are over 6ft high and I couldn’t see over them!

COFLEIN states:
‘This oval mound measures 30m x 24m with a height of 1.9m on the southern, downhill side but only 1.2m on the uphill side. The barrow is turf-covered though probing indicates the predominance of stone in its make up. There are no visible structural elements’.
