Home / Devon / Five Barrows Hill 8

aerial photographs of Bronze Age barrows on Five Barrows Hill, in the Exmoor National Park, Devon, England UK. There are actually rather more than five barrows on five barrow hill, probably around 8. The Hill likely gets its name from the fact that five of the barrows are visible from the roadway lower down the hill. Bowl Barrow burials typically date from the late Neolithic period to the Late Bronze Age, with the majority dated between 2400-1500BC. They are constructed as an earthen mound and may contain a single burial or several. There are more than 370 Barrows on Exmoor. Although the Barrows on 5 Barrow Hll have suffered some degrading over the years, considering they 4or 5000 years old, the archeology is remarkably well preserved.

The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
