We walked from White Horse Hill over to the odd mound called Wayland’s Smithy. I have been here lots, but its a first for Worrybomb and her Big Sister A who came with us.
After the walk, Worrybomb and I went to the Horse to make a wish!
Wayland’s Smithy is an atmospheric historic site situated approximately 2km along the Ridgeway from the Uffington White Horse. A Neolithic chambered long barrow, it was once believed to have been the habitation of the Saxon smith-god Wayland.
Excavations in the 20th century revealed that the barrow seen today actually covers an earlier burial structure, and human remains found on the site indicate that 14 people were interred there between 3590 and 3550 BC.
