Lovely shot,Dave.
The terracing looks just like the neolithic fields around the burial sites up here in Gloucestershire.

Nice series. I like cool colors and warm weather, but it not so easy to set on the weather, but I do have a heater and an air-conditioner in my car, so all is not lost.

Previously I would suspect that there were fortresses built upon this burrow before the church. The highest point allowed for easier viewing of any marauding forces from below hence aiding in defense of the landowners holdings. It would be interesting to do research and see who actually was there before, perhaps a Roman garrison...

About WurzelDave

WurzelDave

I'm a 'wurzel' who lives in South West England (UK) in the county of Somerset (next to Devon), famous for scrumpy cider, Cheddar cheese, The Wurzels (well worth going to see) & birth county of 2009 F1 world champion Jenson Button.Like the rest of the West Country, Somerset has many areas, places & landscapes worth a visit such as Glastonbury Tor & Abbey ruins, Quantock hills, West Somerset Railway, Cheddar Gorge, & Exmoor, to name but a very few.Favourite holiday destiations are Iceland (see alot of photos) & the Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi Sweden (also see photos). Still a lover of the flim camera, my first camera was an Halina 110 camera which you could buy flip flashes for! I have a Canon 3000V SLR film camera, also have some TLR cameras from the 1950's plus Canon powershot A3300 & SX150 digital cameras which are useful for close up macro shots & also makes film 'last' longer!
