A small and charming barrow on a slight east/west ridge above a stream. It's roughly round, about 10 metres in diameter with evidence of a ditch/fosse and rising to a little over a metre. There's a lump of very smooth brownstone dumped on top, a handy little stool for LM to rest on as I explained to her about the princess buried beneath. There's other cairn-like rubble on the northern arc of the barrow. A nice little diversion if you're in the vicinity which has other mounds and habitation sites. ryaner Posted by ryaner
