Osmaston Fields

Round Barrow(s)


Decided to check out the group of barrows near the villages of Osmaston and Edlaston.

This barrow was a bit, no alot of a surprise, it's bloody massive. Measuring some 45 x 50m in diameter, and around 4m high the barrow is in excellent condition.
Close to Thomas Bateman's patch, the barrow somehow escaped his attention.

It's a pretty easy walk of nearly a mile to this huge barrow, parking by the church in Osmaston village, although you have to leave the path by the stream in the bottom to get to the barrow.
