Boles Barrow -- photo from Pete G

Here is a splendid photo of Boles Barrow -- kindly sent by Pete Glastonbury.  He says:  "Here is a recent photos of Boles Barrow. it is now protected from the military and has chicken wire covering it to stop the badgers.  I am looking into getting permission to photograph it from a drone sometime soon."  I assume that's chalk rather than slow that we can see.  Anyway, glad it's now being better protected, and we look forward to seeing some new photos from the air........

It is common practice on Salisbury Plain to protect barrows with chicken wire to stop the bsdgers excavating archaeological remains when seeking to build their setts.
