View southwest of Bratton Camp, Wiltshire
Part of the northwest scarp slope of Salisbury Plain. The hillside ridges, or "terracettes", are also known as "sheep tracks". These terracettes are the result of downhill soil-creep over thousands of years, exacerbated by the trampling of livestock, which mostly walk across the hillside rather than up and down it.
