Three Hills (Round Barrow(s)) — Fieldnotes

Funny what you find on your doorstep. A short detour from the A14, through Woodford will find this little gem overlooking the Nene valley. Nice Easter day and the first barrow is now a giant rabbit warren. Footpath gives excellent access.

Nympsfield (Long Barrow) — Fieldnotes

A good attempt to present an opened barrow by EH, suprisingly untouched/unvandalised considering its accessibility. Has the earth bank been rebuilt? Visit this then go on to Hetty Peglers Tump for the real thing!

Hetty Pegler's Tump (Long Barrow) — Fieldnotes

A planned detour on the way to Cornwall. I first stopped at the easily accessible Nymphsfield Long Barrow - a picnic place with an ice-cream van! Then on to HPT. This is a gem! Not so easily accessible as NLB to the casual visitor, but well, well worth seeking out. Some kind visitor even left a candle (no matches though). The interior is quite and comtemplative, sit for a while and enjoy the stillness. At time of visit (march 2002) the chambers were carpeted with dry leaves and shimmering with condensation. Great place!
