All Cannings – Long Barrow

About this site

The long Barrow was built in 2014 in the style of a Neolithic Long Barrow updated to be useable in the 21st Century. It houses cremated remains in natural stone niches within chambers inside the barrow.

The exterior has been restored to species rich chalk grassland.

The interior has controlled access for the security and dignity of the remains but the exterior is free to visit at all reasonable times.

The spring and early summer is best for flowers as the grasses are allowed to grow to flowering and seed.
