West Kennet Long Barrow

West Kennet Long Barrow

There is very little folklore associated with West Kennet Long Barrow - the longest long barrow in England.  There is just the sliver of a remnant of a story.  On Midsummer's Eve it is told that a spectre appears, a man and his white hound with the red ears of the cwm annwn,  and he visits the barrow and makes a patrol of the general area.
