Swalkestone, half a mile to the south, was a very important place as it guarded, for hundreds of years, one of the few bridges across the Trent for miles. The small road here was a major North South route. There are several iron age barrows here though the ones in the field to the east are more difficult to spot as they have been ploughed over.
In this picture the high spot on the horizon to the south south east is Breedon Church
