|Description ||Beneath dense foliage in the churchyard, there is a bowl barrow. Much later, it was dug into and a pagan Saxon was buried in it. Does the church therefore occupy the site of a former Pagan sacred place.|
|Famous dowser Hamish Miller refers to this mound in his book "The Sun and the Serpent", which charts the serpentine movements of the "Michael" and "Mary" earth energy currents that cross each other as they move diagonally across southern England, between St Michaels Mount off Marazion in Cornwall, to the Norfolk coast at Hopton on Sea. He found a node, or crossing of the two lines, in the middle of this mound.|
|Seems to have been a very special place. Lots more here but mostly ploughed out. More information on other sites in or near Ogbourne St Andrew is available on PastScape http://www.pastscape.org/homepage/index.html|
|Went there. Very hard to find.|
