One of the Three Barrows, Ugborough Moor, Dartmoor

Walk Photo 338701

One of the Three Barrows, Ugborough Moor, Dartmoor

Caption - One of the Three Barrows, Ugborough Moor, Dartmoor. The cairns of Three Barrows dominate Ugborough Moor. Our ancestors of 4000 years ago chose a good place on which to commemorate their dead - and they erected three barrows of presumably their most important people on this well placed peak. Three Barrows can be seen from many places around and below the moor. The views from the hill are impressive in good weather - in misty conditions there's a strong sense of isolation that surrounds this burial place.

Location Map

Walking in the Dartmoor National Park is wholly contained within the boundaries of Devon and is dominated by some of the wildest upland moorland in the UK. Granite outcrops or tors are a feature of the landscape and add visual interest. Beautiful rolling countryside surrounds the high moors adding to the scenic contrasts enjoyed by visitors. With a long and varied history there is much evidence of former ages from Neolithic sites to more recent industrial heritage. More Information
