Even though it is a bit of hike to get to, this ancient burial mound is worth the effort, especially towards dusk when the site becomes magical in appearance.

Interesting monument to visit if you are walking in the area but not worth a special visit/detour for. Information panel provides the history of the site.

Visited this many times, you can even shelter in the burial chambers if it rains ! One of the best preserved tombs of the type in the Couintry

Nice walk, steep in places, but managable if reasonably fit, lovely views of the countryside. Very little to see but interesting to read the history of the place.

It is some climb to get to this place, but if you enjoy history then it's worth it. One of the best preserved long barrows I've come across. The information boards explain what you're looking at and make it a worthwhile experience.

I visited the site by taking the circular walk from Winchcombe. It's a steep walk but you're treated to stunning views on the way up and down and it doesn't take long (it took me about 90 minutes or so to walk up and back)....More
