A pair of round barrows on the ridge of Limekiln Hill. The barrows are bowl type and are either side of the B3157 coast road. The northern one is the larger of the two and has some damage done to it by animals. I could not get to the southern barrow as it was surrounded by young bullocks and I bottled out, having been chased in the past.
These mounds are part of a scatter of barrows along this part of the coast, to the east are Tulks Hill and Puncknowle to the west. Five hundred metres to the south is the wonderfully named Labour-in-Vain farm.

Driving west along the B3157 I spotted 3 Barrows – 1 on the left and 2 on the right.
Each grass covered Barrow was approximately 1 metre high x 10 metres across.

There sure are a lot of prehistoric sites in this area!
