Wittenham Clumps



I have teased you with a couple of photos from this local beauty spot in South Oxfordshire so this week I will show a few of the Views from Wittenham Clumps







A view of Castle hill you see from Round hill
















And this is the top of Round Hill














Castle hill gets hits name as it was an Iron Age Hill Fort and on the left you ca see part of the defensive ditch that surrounded it










Here you can see what the ditch looks like from the bottom
















The steps give an indication of how steep it is. Back in Iron Age times it would have been deeper








From The Clumps you can see various villages from around the are and above is Dorchester with its famous Abbey


The River Thames runs past the base of Wittenham Clumps and below you can see Day Lock, the lakes over to the right are the old Dorchester Gavel pits no used for recreation


Right below is Little Wittenham Manor with the church over to the right in the Trees. The Manor is owned by Sir Martin Wood


A little further afield you can see Culham and the JET Project


Last of all  Didicot Power Station and some of the remaining parts of the old power satstion, the new part is in the centre

Photosphere picture I took
