Scratch The Earth, Dig The Burial Ground. Sense of time won't be easily found.

It's not damp or gloomy inside. Sheltered from the wind, once your eyes adjust everything glows warmly, lit by the candles. Some of the limestone even has a slight sparkle here and there. With places to sit on soft cushions or stone benches, the natural sunlight streams into the centre of the barrow providing a quiet and calm place to reflect on things.

I love the tranquil mood of this image. I read up on it and was fascinated that somebody broke the mould of memorial walls and went back to ancient structures. Thank you.

Thank you very much. This is the second modern barrow built in Britain in the last few years. There's a long barrow in Wiltshire and they're planning on building another round barrow in Shropshire. I'm just hoping they build one in Hertfordshire so I can reserve a niche for myself.

Those warm colors have a peaceful influence on visitors

They certainly worked on me. It's really dark in there when you first arrive. Everything is very grey and black. After a few minutes your eyes adjust and this lovely sandy colour just spreads outwards.
