Tumulus at Ashley Cross, New Forest
A low-angle view of this bronze-age bowl barrow, in the rain. The track in the foreground is the off-road cycle route between Frogham and Fritham. The barrow is 2 metres high and 16 metres in diameter. The 'tumulus' label on the 1:25000 OS map looks as if it is referring to the much larger mound to the east, which is not a prehistoric barrow but the buried remains of a reinforced concrete mock submarine pen used as a bombing target during the Second World War.
