This must be about the oddest place I've seen a barrow, the photo doesn't show how truly steep the hill it sits atop is. If I'm feeling particularly insane one day I may walk up there and see the seaward barrow, I'm willing to bet the view is worth it.
The barrow itself is quite a large bell barrow, which looks like a pimple on an elephant on this great round hill.
