View of Knap Hill from Adam's Grave long barrow
The view of Knap Hill looking northeast from Adam's Grave long barrow. The two sites are almost at the same elevation (250 metres above sea level) and from here the outline of Knap Hill blends into the higher ground of Golden Ball Hill behind it although the ditch segments of the causewayed enclosure show up remarkably well. The inset image shows the hill outline with the ditches marked in dark grey.
