Seven Sisters

Round Barrow(s)


Whilst I was at Clifton Suspension Bridge in late Dec I saw an interesting topic on the information board for the Downs. Info on the 'Seven Sisters' said "A circle of pine trees, five of which are original, having been planted about 1871. The two added in 1991 replaced losses from the 1990 storms. They stand on a slight mound situated on a high point on Durdham Downs, a location thought to have been a Bronze Age round barrow dating from some 3-4,000 years ago"

Nothing shown on OS map. Nothing mentioned on the 'Magic' web site.
