Hetty Pegler's Tump burial site reopens after repairs


A Neolithic burial site in Gloucestershire has been reopened to the public after two years of repairs.

Uley Long Barrow, known as Hetty Pegler's Tump, was closed while urgent structural work was carried out.

Structural damage to the interior dry stone walls of the burial chamber had left it in an unsafe condition.

English Heritage has overseen the work by contractors to restore the 120ft (37m) long monument, which dates back to 3200BC, Steve Knibbs reports.
