|Description ||Two 'bosomy' shaped hills on the right horizon here (205 and 210 degs respectively from the centre of Mardon Down circle), might have been a 'Mother Earth'/ 'Goddess' image to the ancient people.|
Maybe they watched the Winter Solstice sun set between them?
I believe they are Chinkwell and Honeybag Tors - NE of Widecombe - which lie to the east of Hamel Down.
| My favourite kind of hills :-) Wonderful pictures from Mardon Down. |
I think I really need to get 'The Dartmoor Atlas of Antiquities Vol5' maybe an eBay Xmas gift to myself this year.
| Hi Matt .... Does that mean you also have Vols 1, 2, 3, and 4? ;-) If not, I'd recommend them, too.|
