one of a number of barrows in a relatively short distance. situated halfway between croft hill - iron age hill fort - and brinklow mound. this barrow holds the most westerly position. Moving east there is copstone barrow and then wigston parva barrow. all within aprox 1 mile of each other. there is not a lot to see here. just a raised level in the middle of some vegetable crops. I Will get permission off the farmer next time to wander aimlessly around his field. broen Posted by broen
