Hetty Peglars Tump

Our local ancient monument Uley Tumulus has been closed to the public for sometime for repairs as it was deemed in danger of collapse but we are pleased to see in is now reopened and you can now crawl inside this prehistoric burial mound again. The mound is around 5000 years old and was named after Hester Peglar in the 17th Century after the wife of the owner of the field.
