Bricks in the track – World War 2 Archaeology
Bricks in the track – World War 2 Archaeology
During the Second World War tanks rumbled through the woods and troops drilled along Monument Drive. Wooden huts were erected for the troops – to be removed when they were no longer needed. Without improvement this woodland track would have turned to a sea of mud, so a proper path was laid, edged with a row of bricks!
The Ashridge National Trust Estate :: SP9713
The Ashridge Estate covers a wide area of the Chiltern Hills on the Hertfordshire Buckinghamshire border, which provides open access to large woods and open grassland. There are many footpaths and bridleways - including part of the Ridgeway – and wonderful opportunities to observe wild life – including deer.
The Estate Office, Visitor Centre and Café are close to the Bridgewater Monument on Moneybury Hill, above the village of Aldbury.
