Description |


Windmill Tump Long Barrow is a remnant of ancient Britain where ceremony and sacrifice were important. Follow the path as it skirts around the gate and enters a natural corridor between crops and hedgerow.

 

In summer butterflies and insects abound as they dart and dance from wild poppy to rose; followed predictably by chirruping but curious small birds. It is one of the delights of this discovery. The wandering path towards an unknown destination.


The Long Barrow appears before you from out of the wilderness surrounded by a gated enclosure. Curiosity or interest will see you circle this interesting archaeology. Pondering north and south perhaps, its alignment  or perhaps who they were - these people from long ago. 


Before you leave, take a moment to lean upon the fence - more natural Cotswold landscape abounds.
