We took a circular walk up the hill from Winchcombe, making our way to Belas Knap. What an intriguing place.
The climb up the hill and through the woods was well-worth it, as we explored the different entrances to what is an ancient burial ground. To know that 38 bodies were buried there approximately 6000 years ago was quite breathtaking, especially considering the well-preserved mound and immaculate dry stone walls at the entrances which make it appear pristine.
If you have any interest in history - or just want a truly lovely hill walk, with magnificent views - head up to Belas Knap!
