I spotted this on MAGIC while planning a trip to Clearbury Rings. It is south of the hillfort and is a long barrow about 60m in length, 18m wide and 2.5 m in height at its highest point, it reduces in height on the southern end. It appears to be on private land, but a foot path passes close by so hopefully I will be able to photograph it soon. formicaant Posted by formicaant
