Re: Circles under churches

Would a "possible long barrow under a church" fit in this thread?

A friend of mine found a lovely little church in the New Forest that sits atop the big end of a wedge-shaped mound... It seems to just lurch out of the ground in otherwise fairly flat environs. To all intents and purposes it FEELS like a long barrow, and it don't half LOOK like one, but can I find any information about it? Can I 'eck!

The church is in Bramshaw and is dedicated to St Peter. It's full of yews (natch) and I was half expecting to find a well in the grounds! The map ref, according to one website that mentions the church, is SU264166, for anyone interested (and, no - it's NOT marked as a barrow on the map)

I have pics but haven't got around to posting them anywhere yet...
