Sheep grazing on Wyke Down
Sheep grazing on Wyke Down
Looking northeast from the gate at the car parking area by the minor road in this grid square. There is public access to this field for a "conservation walk" around an area renowned for its rich archaeological interest. The grassy banks in the middle distance are spoil heaps from an excavated bronze-age henge monument, and beyond this are several bronze-age barrows. The course of the neolithic Dorset Cursus runs close by, as does the agger of the Roman Ackling Dyke.
