Five Wells

UK»England»Derbyshire»Five Wells

Five Wells are two limestone tombs lieing next to each other on top of a hill. There were originally two low entrances at opposite sides into the mound which led to low passages reaching back into the chambers. The entrances might have been blocked with large slabs which could be rolled to one side. They were built and filled with the bones of the dead between 6,000 and 4,000 years ago. From the hill, you get impressive views to the north across the limestone plateau.
