"The Dongas" hollow ways, Twyford Down
"The Dongas" hollow ways, Twyford Down
This picture is looking east from the edge of the grid square at some of the medieval hollow ways on Twyford Down. These ancient trackways come down from the South Downs to Winchester, and over the centuries the action of hooves, wheels and feet wore deep channels into the chalk. When one became too treacherous another parallel route would be taken. Now the hollow ways are grassed over with trees and bushes growing on the slopes. This is part of the St Catherine's Hill nature reserve (although separated from the hill proper by the M3 cutting).
