Cold Pixie's Cave

Round Barrow(s)


The name of the barrow is thought to be a corruption of "colt-pixie". These creatures were supposed to lure young ponies to their deaths in the water logged marshy parts of the heath. Another explanation is that the creatures were part horse and called other horses into the barrow. formicaant Posted by formicaant
