The Fairy Knowe

Chambered Cairn


On the steep climb to the tomb you are grateful for a few flattish bits but don't pay much attention. Yesterday, however, whilst taking shots from Wideford Hill it was evident that these result from a couple of very large 'platforms' (seen in outline on the north side of the images). First thought was that these are connected with the tomb, which they dwarf almost as much as Heddle Hill. Second thought is cultivation terraces related to the nearby Neolithic settlements.
Prepared to be shot down in flames.
