Damage to Neolithic monument under investigation

English Heritage and Avon and Somerset Police are seeking witnesses after vandals daubed graffiti at Stoney Littleton Long Barrow, a 5,000 year old Neolithic chambered tomb at Wellow near Bath.

Stoney Littleton Long Barrow is a Scheduled Ancient Monument in the care of English Heritage. It is one of the country’s finest accessible examples of a Neolithic chambered tomb dating from about 3500 BC.


Vandals who daubed red handprints on a Neolithic monument may have damaged it permanently, heritage experts fear.
