The Long Bredy bank barrow, Martin's Down
The Long Bredy bank barrow, Martin's Down
Looking south at the neolithic bank barrow on Long Barrow Hill. At nearly 200m long it is the longest surviving neolithic barrow in Britain, and over 6 times longer than the more conventional long barrow located a few hundred metres to the southeast. The V-shaped notch visible in the barrow's mound is probably not original, and is found a third of the way along from the left-hand end.
