Exploring Bratton and Edington

Episode 3,   Jan 31, 2021, 12:01 AM

This episode looks at the beautiful and historic landscape around the villages of Edington and Bratton.

We follow a walk that Glyn wrote about in May 2019 that starts at the Iron Age Hillfort of Bratton Camp above the Westbury White Horse, and continues via Picquet Hill above Edington after a short diversion to Tinhead Hill. We explore Luccombe Bottom and its spring before returning via Bratton church and the lung busting climb back to Bratton Camp.

You can follow Glyn’s walk on the Hidden Wiltshire website. He’s also written about the area in later blogs. You can tell it’s one his favourite places.

Also in this episode Paul has a little rant whilst Glyn searches for the bleeper.

Thanks to Paul Jackson for the information on the cold war bunker.
