Langcombe Brook / Deadman's Bottom



There are two cairns/kists on the top of the hill,up from the confluence of the Langcombe Brook and the Deadman's Bottom.Very close to these are three circles of stone which were once thought to be cremation circles but are now thought to be the remains of houses.
There are a total of twelve cairns over the course of the Langcombe Brook,eleven of these still have there kists .The most well known of these is known as Grim's Grave.The others are on either side of the brook,some easy to find and others not so.Three of them are barely above the grass and will be lost forever in a year or so.
This is an excellent site to visit and is only a short distance from Drizzlecombe,so is easily accessible.
