Notgrove Long Barrow

Notgrove, Gloucestershire.

In the care of English Heritage the Neolithic Long Barrow was excavated in the 1930's. The Barrow consists of two pairs of side chambers and a gallery grave with an ante-chamber. Several skeletons were found during the dig and the finds are held a Cheltenham Museum. Due to vandalism the Barrow was filled and all that remains of the 150 foot monument is a grass covered hump which still gives an impressive view of the size.             
There is no admission charge.
