Poor Lot Barrow Cemetery

Poor Lot Barrow Cemetery is about 2 mile west of Winterbourne Abbas on the A35 near the junction of a minor road to Compton Valence and about a mile from the Nine Stones stone circle. In the 1950s the A35 road was built through the Barrow Cemetery, in fact a long barrow was partially destroyed. The road is perilously close to Nine Stones as well. Nowadays, i hope, that would not be allowed to happen. The barrows are Bronze age, approx 4,000 years old. There are various types of barrows here, bowl, bell, pond and disk. You can park at Wellbottom Lodge, but space is very limited and also on the minor road just opposite.
