Event - 2021 Open Days at the Soulton Long Barrow
Soulton Long Barrow is now finished after 5 years of work, save for some landscapeing.
We are pleased to have a programme for public visiting in 2021, which is shared on this page, which will be updated as further things are added.
Please note that the #lockdown3 means we are not hosting in person open days at the barrow at this time; we will bring tham back as soon as we can. In the meantime we will be making other events happen online and Sacred Stones can assist with any urgent questions if you are at a point of need.
The completion of the monument has attracted slightly overwhelming interst. The thread below, which shared the first images of the new chamber working on the solstice and tells the story of the project, for example has had around one million impressions.

As I just explained, we just finished building a new monument, #soultonlongbarrow, which revives a prehistoric practice of building long barrows, not seen for 5,500 years
