Old Sarum's outer ditch
Old Sarum's outer ditch
The steep bank on the western side of Old Sarum, viewed from the top of the outer counter-scarp bank (with the ditch below). The people standing at the top of the inner bank give an impression of the scale of this vast earthwork. Although the defences were first built in the Iron Age they were expanded by the Saxons and Normans. It looks like this part of the bank has been used as a 'slide' in the recent past.
