Wyck Beacon Bowl Barrow

Bowl barrows were created from the Neolithic through to the Bronze Age in Great Britain. A bowl barrow is an approximately hemispherical mound covering one or more Inhumations or cremations.

The hillfort known as Idbury Camp survives as a visible earthwork, despite the ramparts having been partly levelled into the ditches by cultivation. It is known from stray finds recovered after ploughing to contain archaeological and environmental evidence relating to its construction. Further buried remains sealed in the primary ditch fills will provide evidence of […]

The Wildflower “Fashion”

Posted on

Maybe fashion is the incorrect word, but I have never known so much interest in wild flowers in our village and there is no doubt they do look beautiful. Take a look at the Poppies after the rain. The water droplets forming on the buds. I note that a patch of wild flowers have been […]

On Friday I collected litter from Barrington Road, which basically consisted of a booklet of A4 sheets, unfortunately not bound but spread the length of Barrington Road (100 pages).
