This group of barrows bridges the gap between Gould's hill and the Came / Bincombe groups. It consists of about 7 - 10 round barrows, some of which are very badly damaged by ploughing. This set completes the south Dorset Ridgeway line of monuments which runs from Martin's Down to White Horse hill. I have included the two most easily photographable barrows, there are another three that I know of still visible in the landscape. formicaant Posted by formicaant
