Glaciated chalk landscape, Eggardon Hill
Looking south from the south-east entrance to Eggardon iron-age hillfort, this glaciated chalk escarpment is beautifully contoured and reminiscent of SU2986 : The Manger, north of Uffington Castle. A few sheep can be seen perched on the edge of the steep slope, to the left of the photo.
