Well preserved Neolithic long barrow

An excellent example of a Neolithic long barrow, located on Salisbury Plain, a few miles from Stonehenge. This was our first purely archaeological purchase.

The archaeologist William Cunnington first described the barrow. The archaeological remains provide information about the Neolithic beliefs, economy and environment. It's one of a number of long barrows in the area two of which are visible from White Barrow.

The name comes from the colour of the chalk from which it is made. Bronze or Iron Age earthworks can also be seen at the site.

The site supports rare bees only found at a handful of sites in Britain
