As Clive. We had no views and used the fog as an exercise in map interpretation. Using the bend in the road as a guide to which way the tumulus was hiding in the murk. An impressive mound in a dull field. With Laura.W.stig_nest15/04/2016
Also parked at 404997 but went up a deep gully between two fences which is the row. The fence that is not on the map is confusing but, if you keep going up, the summit is obvious. It is a tumulus.clivevilla12/10/2014
