Sheep resting in the shade of the radio mast, Butser Hill
Sheep resting in the shade of the radio mast, Butser Hill
There is precious little shade up on the plateau of Butser Hill, and these sheep were making the most of the shadow of the radio mast on top of the hill. Prehistoric Britons had a farming settlement on top of the hill, and the sheep carry on the tradition today (although the climate back then was probably more hospitable in the winter). There are defensive earthworks on many of the approach spurs to the plateau.
