[visited 10/1/03] Very ploughed out and not much to see to be honest. In a county deprived of much prehistory, these need to be acknowledged but probably just one for the obsessives...

Only six barrows remain of the presumably seven that once stood here on a low ridge. Of those remaining, one is so denuded it is barely visible, two have been dug into and the other three have been ploughed low.

Its no longer the nicest of locations either; any views that once existed are gone, hidden by the trees...
