The Six Hills, Stevenage


The six hills which occupy prominence in the town are tumuli or Round Barrows dating from the Bronze Age. According to legend the hills are spade fulls of earth taken from Whomerly wood and thrown at the town by a giant (or the Devil) intent on destruction. His last shot went well off mark and knocked the steeple off Gravely Church two miles away.

Unexplained earthworks and standing stones were often seen as the work of the Devil or giants.

Directions:
The hills are near the centre of the town. Stevenage can be reached off the A1M.
