King Barrow Ridge Reviews & Ratings
The landscape around Stonehenge is home to many barrows - many barely perceptible. But there barrows are still visible and they are magnificent. Still, you must be in the right frame of mind. Visually, they are just mounds of dirt, but if you come able to see them as relics of a lost ancient world, they are incredibly moving.
