|Description ||main road barrows view
Yes, those punctuation marks are about the name on the NMRS ! I've debated long about adding these, but yesterday they stood out. They lie the other side of the stream from the often muddy footpath between Inganess Bay and the road to Deerness. Coming from the road having watched a reed bunting I noticed a few stones near the bottom of the mound at that end. Passing by and looking back the appearance was of a low hill of three humps. It is probably on airport land but it is only just the other side of the beck. Originally it was seen as over half-a-dozen mounds, of which a couple were modern and some had been used by farmers for a sheep fold etc. Now the archaeologists seem to be concluding that it is one mound heavily dug into and they are no longer confident of any antiquity.
