Old burial tombs seem to have got themselves associated with the devil all over the place - he must have been a busy lad!
Just down the road this one at Rode ( near Trowbridge in Wiltshire). So just a short afternoon stroll but a very pleasant one.
This is a lovely Neolithic chambered long barrow - well worth the effort to hunt it down
A glorious peaceful setting - it isn't very well known and as I said takes a bit of effort to locate.
The site is much disturbed but there are the remains of maybe two or three chambers here. The site is concealed by a copse of mature horse chestnut trees and as there are a couple of copses in the immediate vicinity it takes a bit of finding.
Unsurprisingly we had the place to ourselves which was nice. I don't think it gets many visitors.
Local lore is that attempts to move the stones will be foiled by bad weather!
