Barrow Copse

Long Barrow


After walking through Lockeridge Dene sarsen drift we headed up a narrow path towards Huish and into West Woods. How wonderful West Woods is at the moment - the bluebells are almost fully out so a haze of blue to be seen in almost all directions.

A more or less straight path across the wood to Hurley Bottom then onto Strawberry Ground (wild strawberries flourishing here). Turning left, follow the outer path, the Wansdyke also runs along this part of West Wood. And there is the long barrow - today covered in bluebells and dappled sunlight. Magical!

Beautiful, the pics demonstrate that wonderfully too. You really should visit West Tump long barrow near Cranham. Now's the time of year to go. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
