[visited 9/12/02] Brr, its fking freezing up here in the depths of a Norfolk winter. According to ma guidebook, there are at least 4 large barrows here plus lots of "mini-barrows" making this the largest barrow cemetary in Norfolk.

I managed just two of the barrows, Gallows Hill & Halfpenny Hill. Both very respectably sized bowl barrows, covered in bracken. Halfpenny Hill is defn. the most impressive though Gallows Hill is easier to find and has 360 degree views from the top including the sea.

HH is at TG077422 & GH is at TG080425. The mini-barrows are (I think) in Taylors wood at TG069421

Try and visit this site after the bracken dies for maximal satisfaction.
