The Swan at Rowberrow

Rowberrow is a small village near Churchill and Shipham in Somerset, England.

Rowberrow is close to the Dolebury Warren iron age hill fort.

It is the site of a Bronze Age barrow approximately 20 metres (66 ft) in diameter, which was excavated in 1813,[1] and is believed to have given the village its name as Rowbarrow means 'rough hill' or 'barrow'.[2]

It was formerly a mining parish producing calamine.[3]

The parish Church of St Michael and All Angels dates from the late 14th century, however the nave, chancel and south porch were rebuilt in 1865. It is a Grade II* listed building.[4]
