The locals like to debate about where Burrowye actually it.  Here is where the sign is.  I have been researching the meaning. Wye is a triangular intersection - we have one of those, where the Guy's Forest Road turns off The Murray River Road. We call it the triangle and it's the axis about which we move our stock.  A "Barrow" is a large rounded burial mound, according to celtic mythology.  Just above the very round triangle is Paul's Hill. Very barrow like in appearance, but a monolith, so possibly not a burial place.  This is not a conventional meaning. It's a hunch....
