Red Earl's Dyke, The Malverns
Red Earl's Dyke, The Malverns
Very visible in the sunny snow.
Looking towards Broad Down from Millennium Hill.
The dyke was created in 1287 by the "red" Earl of Gloucester, Gilbert de Clare, following a boundary dispute with the Bishop of Hereford, Thomas de Cantilupe.
It has marked the boundary between Herefordshire (to the right) and Worcestershire for many centuries.
Also visible just to the right of the ridge in the lower half of the picture is the outine of a rectangular medieval rabbit warren.
