Owner description: 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.

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).

The barrow itself is a peaceful spot and an impressive construction, the information board gives you the history of the excavations and what was found, I would've liked more information but it may be that we don't know much more than that.

I'd certainly take the walk up again.

This great attraction is overseen by English heritage and is actually free to go and see anyway - it was really busy this time when I went as it was a glorious day - I was going on a walk that went passed it and it was good to see so many people out enjoying the brilliant weather and seeing the place of historic interest - I will be back to see it next month (September) with a group of walkers and hope for a good day weather-wise then too
