About
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.

It's a bit of a walk to get there but it's worth the effort! Awe inspiring to think of the effort it must have taken for iron age tribes to build this monument to their dead.

I visited as part of of a circular walk from Cleve Hill. There are charming views on this tour. The longbarrow is quite stricking and atmospheric. You can then walk into Winchcombe. Or back to the Cleve Hill car parks. Great walk

We were staying nearby so went for a stroll - lovely views from the top of the hill. The tomb itself is not very special (to someone who is not well versed in English history!) the site would perhaps benefit from a couple more signs...More
