Barrow / Cairn Cemetery

North Down (Barrow / Cairn Cemetery) by Chance The North Down cemetery. The oldest barrow is this Neolithic long barrow (now only 20cm higher than the surrounding field) - Scheduled Monument : SM21861

A bowl barrow was built in the Bronze Age close to the longbarrow, and around this focus were built the many other round barrows of the cemetery
