A particularly fine example of a Neolithic long barrow of c.3800 BC, featuring a false entrance and side chambers. One of the best preserved and restored of more than seventy long barrows in the Cotswolds. Probably constructed around 3000BC, it is a tomb which would have been used for successive burials over a period of years.Excavated in 1863 and 1865, the remains of 31 people were found in the chambers. The barrow has since been restored.
