Henlow Barrow

This ancient hlaew has been used as a sacred meeting place for pagans since the Bronze Age. It is currently the site for pagan high holy day festivals and is then attended by a small crowd of revelers. Although many of the commoners of Henlow have adopted Christ as their Lord and Savior, quite a few of them remain entrenched within the old ways and unwilling to give up their heathen gods.

It is said that on the Harvest Moon, the faeries under the mound rise up and make a great festival. On those nights no man nor beast, be he pagan or God fearing Christian, will go within site of the barrow. The commoners and landlord alike keep their farmlands out of sight and earshot of the mound.
