Norn's Tump long barrow, near Avening
The long barrow stands close to a public footpath across Minchinhampton golf course. Norn's Tump is orientated SE-NW and has a maximum height of 3.1 m towards the SE end. The NW end (seen here on the left) has been ploughed down to a height of 1.0 m and is now under grass. The higher part has been considerably mutilated and is partly scrub and tree covered. According to Pastscape, an old print of the 'Long Barrow at the Norn' published in 1911 shows two chambers in the side. LinkExternal link
