From Uffington white horse car park it's a mile and a half hike up to the barrow, but well worth it if you're into your prehistory. It's an excellent example of a Neolithic long barrow and the burial chamber is open, although rather cramped, for examination. There is a single information point for the barrow.
Went there whilst walking the Ridgeway. Not too sure how you would access it otherwise. Would require a bit of a walk. Car access up there is limited. I found it to be very peaceful and not really spooky like it said in one of my guide books.
This is ok it isn't anything special and took about 5 mins to walk around.... I went with my fiancé and 2 young child ages 3 and 5. After we looked around here there was a nice Walk thur the forest which we all enjoyed more then the stones.
we came with our cousins from their home in didcot, about a 20-30 minute drive away. a lovely warm sunny day. came upon this site along to the right from the carpark, along the ridgeway, an ancient road, now a hiking path, that runs along the beskshire downs. we walked about 60 minutes along the ridgeway before turning to go... 更多
Wayland's Smithy was a real highlight of my visit to the Uffington horse site. I was fairly tired after hours wandering around the horse hills, but made time for Wayland's Smithy. It was definitely worth the aching feet to stop by. A really remarkable site--off the radar for many visitors so it was quite quiet and made for a very... 更多
Not the most widely sung archaeological site in the country but it really should be. Absolutely worth the wander up from the car park and along the track. Not many sites like it in the UK - absolutely fantastic, and well managed considering it's not manned!
Worth the walk, when I was there I had the place to myself for a bit. Massive barrow, very impressive, go have a look! Free! Absolutely no facilities (no cafe, no loo, no nuffink: Part of the charm)
From the car park you can take a pleasant walk to this Neolithic Treasure situated in a beautifully quiet location. It is an interesting Long Barrow to see, in fantastic condition, with great atmosphere. Your visit can easily be combined with seeing the nearby White Horse, Dragon Hill and Uffington Castle (There isn't an actual castle there). These are all... 更多
We visited this site in conjunction with Dragon Hill, the White Horse and Uffington Castle. Luckily when we got there we were alone so it was very atmospheric. Set in a grove of trees it is much longer than we imagined. You get a great sense of how it must have been when originally built. Recommended
