Fox Howe Round Barrow - Dalby Forest

This nicely preserved round barrow stands close to the junction of two tracks to the north of the Langdale Forest and is fairly close to Dargate Dikes as well as several other more damaged barrows. Despite being in a Forestry Commission planting area and next to the track this Bronze Age mound has survived well and still measures about 20 metres in diameter and over 2 metres tall although it is difficult to gauge the exact height as it is heavily overgrown with bracken, thistles and nettles. As far as is known, the barrow has never been excavated.
