Having read about the The Long Barrow at All Cannings being a modern day long barrow for the interment of ashes, I've been wanting to visit for a while. I left feeling very underwhelmed compared to recent visits to other local historical long barrows (West...More

My mother died earlier this month, however she was so pleased that she had managed to obtain a 'niche' for her and Dad, who died in 1999. The Long Barrow has been built to an excellent standard and the outside gives no indication of the...More

Spotted this long barrow from the canal and was surprised it wasn't better signed. Then I discovered it's a modern day burial chamber for ashes. Yep it's well sited and an impressive structure but nothing there explaining anything about it just a note to visit...More

Glad you were impressed and I hope you enjoyed the views from it. It's tricky knowing how much signage to put, too much and they overpower the place, so I thought a link to the website was enough. Sorry if you would have liked more.

Hi - I'm not sure you have the right Long Barrow - I think it may have been West Kennet Long Barrow you visited as this one wasn't built four years ago and didn't have any pagan tributes etc in it. All the best Tim

Didn't take to the couple who run it, something about them. Not convinced it's going to be particularly well cared for in years to come. Probably just me. Sorry.More

Hi, thanks for visiting and I'm pleased the Long Barrow seems part of the landscape. It is actually less than a year old , rather than being an ancient monument. It is really encouraging to read you review as it shows it is at ease...More
