Poppies, Amesbury
Poppies, Amesbury
These may be for morphine production. There are a lot of similar fields in this area around the Hampshire/Wiltshire border. This view is alongside Amesbury Road, the byway heading towards Bulford Camp. In the distance (at the end of the poppy field) you can see one of the Ratfyn Barrows. This is a group of three tumuli, though only one is immediately apparent (even close up). They are on a protected site between fields. A lot of other tumuli on the down have been lost to the plough.
