Gallows Hill

Round Barrow(s)


Visited 8th April 2004: This is the most impressive of the surviving barrows in the area around Ivinghoe Beacon. It stands some way to the east of Beacon Hill, beyond the Ashridge Estate boundary fence, surrounded by arable field.

There's a path up to the barrow, and the views from the top are pretty good. Gallows Hill has retained some of its character though, which can't be said of all the barrows in the area. I guess the stories of it being used for executions lend a certain notoriety to the place as well.
