Bokerley Dyke, Martin Down
Bokerley Dyke, Martin Down
To the left: Dorset. To the right: Hampshire. The dyke is an ancient defensive earthwork - with its ditch on the Hampshire side it was designed to keep the Saxon invaders out of Dorset. In places it overlies the earlier "Grim's Ditch", probably a boundary work from the late Bronze Age. The trees in the far distance are part of Vernditch Chase woods in Wiltshire.
