SU1614 : Good Friday Hill

taken 11 years ago, near to Godshill, Hampshire, Great Britain

Good Friday Hill
Good Friday Hill
This is one of the "Sandy Balls", small hills of alluvial sand deposited during the Eocene era when the river Avon was much higher. The sign reads "Woodland Conservation Area". The hill was clothed in pines until they were felled 2 years ago. This leaves the fine sand vulnerable to erosion by the elements, hastened by badgers that have lived within the hill for many years, rabbits, and children who find the steep soft slopes a tempting playground. Sandy Balls is a holiday centre that has won the David Bellamy conservation award several times.
