The weather was a bit damp and certainly very windy yesterday when we visited Barbury Castle.
It’s an iron age hill fort ( not a castle at all) just South of Swindon on the Wessex Downs, part of a chain of such sites that run along the path known as the Ridgeway.
The views were incredible of the surrounding countryside.
Home is somewhere under that bank of distant clouds.
I loved being up there in spite of the weather- the wild flowers, the sound of sky larks, My grand-daughter was fascinated by the beetle we spotted and the slugs which had come out in the rain. But by golly it was blowy
We thought the kite flier might take off!
Can’t wait to go back on a sunny day and walk right round the site, but after 50 minutes people were cold and we returned to the car park.
Cobwebs well and truly blown away. So good to get out.
Love to know about your wind- blown walks.
