Last week it was Mr E’s birthday and he fancied exploring the area a bit. North Yorkshire is a pretty big county, for most of our day trips we rarely left the district, and I find it a bit strange that Wiltshire is so much smaller and we can quite easily go from one county to several others during the course of a day out. That thought aside we found ourselves in both Dorset and Hampshire and whilst there visted Martin Down Nature Reserve
We had a picnic lunch and then went for a walk. The weather was just right, sunny but not too hot.
I am getting used to the number of iron age hill forts that exist hereabouts- this is another one.
You can play spot Mr E in this picture.
This rampart however was made by the army for training purposes,
thankfully they have gone now and it’s become a haven for wildflowers and butterflies.
I wonder what treats await us next. Have you been anywhere nice recently?
