The Waylands Smithy long barrow lies in a plantation of trees on the famous Ridgeway, not far from the Uffington White Horse and Uffington Castle. Excavations in the 1960s revealed the barrow was constructed in two phases. There is a wooden mortuary enclosure with stone floor that was later covered by a trapezoidal mound of chalk. Inside there are three chambers, one main one and two to the sides.

Crop circle photographer and investigator, Lucy Pringle reported: “The magnificent barrow is approximately due south of the formation. The formation therefore is really in a very remote area and a long way into the field. In fact it is on the crest of the hill looking beyond to Swindon.”
