| Any thoughts on this one before we shrink it?|
Doesn't look prehistoric to me
| Belive this is modern.....A technique used to split the immense stones....Also spotted alongside The Ridgeway in some sreas closeby....( 01/03/2011)|
| The "Dew ponds"were old clay pits mostly for local buildings in or around the area.I belive there is whats left of a Brick kiln inside Totterdown Woods,opposite the "Watered clay pit".|
If you look on the O.S. maps located further along there are two "ponds"these also are old clay pits..locally known as "Glory Ann pond".Far side of this area used to be a Farm House alledgely haunted.....Alas hardley any trace unless you foradge about...
| I've had a closer look at these in good daylight now. The bottom of each hole has a central nipple - suggests to me that they have been drilled or core samples taken - some geology project. |
| If these were for splitting they would be in straight lines wouldn't they? how deep are they? this isn't a rock cannon or similar firework?|
| i think it was Glory Ann Barn? The pond was formed from quarrying probably. I'm pretty sure there was a long barrow nearby which has completely vanished now?|
