    Now that the trees have been cut down this is the first time that I have ever seen these barrows in their true context. Many have thought them to be natural, including myself, but upon seeing the photo's here I have to revise my opinion. They do seem to be 'man-made' and not natural. Further investigation is needed. Well spotted and recorded Danny.

    PS: they are BIG! In fact the largest in the region to my knowledge.
