SU1332 : Old Sarum's outer ditch

taken 10 years ago, near to Ford, Wiltshire, Great Britain

Old Sarum's outer ditch
Old Sarum's outer ditch
Looking down into the ditch on the south-western side of Old Sarum, from the top of the outer bailey bank. The recently cut beech stump in the foreground is a sign of recent clearance work, advertised by English Heritage as being about scrub removal to help stabilise the topsoil on the ramparts. The mature beech trees are supposed to be left intact - perhaps this one was considered dangerous? Beyond the outer counter-scarp bank a plume of smoke is rising from a smouldering fire of cleared wood.
