|Description ||The most southerly of the three Rainbarrows on Duddle Heath, viewed from the middle barrows. This one is at grid reference SY73539201. There is a hollow in the top of the barrow mound, probably due to Edward Cunnington's part excavation in 1887. The area has recently been cleared of scrub as part of the "Hardy's Egdon Heath Project". Puddletown Forest is popular with off-road cyclists, hence the bikes resting on the barrow mound. In the background you can see the Frome valley and in the far distance the Purbeck Ridgeway.|
