ST7979 : Brotton Hill Wood

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

Brotton Hill Wood
Brotton Hill Wood
A small wood west of Burton (a small village in Wiltshire). According to the index of the much-missed Ordnance Survey Atlas of Great Britain (at 1:250,000 scale), there are 8 places called just 'Burton' and a further 21 with names starting with 'Burton', including the better-known 'Burton upon Trent'. No wonder satnavs can lead the ignorant astray!
The presence of the M4 in a nearby cutting is revealed only by the overhead sign (right), the tops of passing trucks - and of course the noise!!
