Alderman's Barrow

About Alderman's Barrow

Alderman allotments and Almsworthy Common provides an amazing opportunity to explore an incredible Bronze age Landscape, with its mysterious stone settings, barrow and hut circle. Alderman’s also presents a relevant context for exploring bank hedgerows, another important aspect of Exmoor’s biodiversity and distinctive feature of the landscape. If you are lucky you may also catch a glimpse of red deer and Exmoor ponies from this exposed road side site. Classroom and field learning resources focus upon:

Exmoor’s changing landscape
Bronze Age landscapes: barrows, hut circles and standing stones
Flora and fauna, e.g. hedgerows
Exmoor’s historical chronology
