Bratton Castle & Westbury White Horse (Hillfort) — Fieldnotes

Westbury White Horse used to be a favourite hang out of mine when I lived in the area (Trowbridge). It's a fantastic spot, especially if you sleep over night in the car. Many a morning myself and some friends would wake up to find all of Wiltshire, or as mush of it as we could see, under a thick white fog, what a site! Even better when the fog lifts and comes rolling up the hill...
The hangliders and paragliders then turn up, along with the dog walkers and general site seers. Can't recommend it highly enough in any season. If you get the opportunity go and watch an electrical storm from there, it's more than memorable.

King Arthur's Cave (Cave / Rock Shelter) — Fieldnotes

Not the easiest of things to find, thanks to a local farmer for pointing us in the right direction!
The caves are situated just on the edge of Highmeadow Woods outside of Coleford in Gloucesteshire. See map reference for further details. To find them, come of the A40 towards Little/Great Doward and head for The Biblins campsite. Just before the first car park is a track down to the right, take this, then down to your right again. Caves down the track on your left.
To be honest I was a bit underwhelmed by the caves, though without a torch we didn't venture too far in, they may hold secrets we didn't find.
Walking back through the woods we spotted wild deer which went some way to making up for the caves.
