Soulton Long Barrow
It is the first such structure to have been built in the Midlands in thousands of years.
The monument is inspired by Neolithic barrows built around 5,500 years ago, and following the constructions of the Long Barrow at All Cannings, Wiltshire and the Sacred Stones Barrow at St Neots, Cambridgeshire.
The structure is to be a sequence of stone chambers under an earthen mound, and was begun in 2017, with a principal stone being laid in the spring of 2018.
Soulton Standing Stones
These were added to the approach route to the barrow in autumn 2017.
There is no deliberate alignment beyond way-marking for these standing stones.
