UK»England»Leicestershire»Billa Barra Hill

Billa Barra Hill: 20.8 Hectares. The site consists of formerly improved pasture, surrounding a small hilltop plantation, dating from the late 1800's/early 1900's, and a small quarry. The name of the hill is thought to mean a "corruption of barrow," meaning burial ground. This is thought to be linked to stories of a Saxon battle on the adjacent land with the dead buried on the hill. However, any physical evidence would have been destroyed at the on-set of quarrying.
