|Description ||January 2005. The Norden Hill tumulus, viewed from the west. It stands on the chalk ridge of Norden Hill, a few hundred metres east of the Dorsetshire Gap: a confluence of ancient trackways. The barrow is broad, uneven, and has a depression at its summit.|
|Is this a barrow, or is it a group of standing stones? I know what it looks like, but the description says differently|
|Good question! I can't see any standing stones either.|
|questions answered as best as possible on the home page for this site.|
|Point taken, I've updated the home page for this site so that it is classed as a round barrow not standing stones. Please imagine the disappointment of my niece when I said we were going to find some ancient stones up a very steep hill and there turned out to be none. I subsequently found out that the stones were recorded a long time ago and have disappeared in the interim.|
