Wayland's Smithy

Wayland's Smithy is a Neolithic long barrow and chamber tomb site close to The Ridgeway, an ancient road running along the Berkshire Downs. It is one of a locall variant of barrows constructed in south west Britain, known as the Severn-Cotswold group.
The barrow was built in two phases, a timber-chambered oval barrow built c3590-3550 BC and a stone-chambered long barrow built over it c3460-3400 BC. It is 56m long and 13m wide at the southern (entrance) end. Its present appearance is the result of restoration.
