Stoney Littleton Long BarrowMarch 27, 2012
An evening walk to find Stoney Littleton Long Barrow, near Wellow. You may remember our ill-fated attempt to find it a few weeks ago, when we were thwarted by mud, ice and big puddles. This time, being dragged by the dog, I made it. And very impressive it is. I had imagined it higher up the hillside, but it was quite a distance from the top, and difficult to get a view of it silhouetted against the sky. Very good views are to be had from the site, of the surrounding hills, and the longbarrow itself is in very good condition. You can enter the long Barrow, past the side chambers to the far end, then make your way out emerging reborn!
