This Scotts pine that features on many of our website pages stands just below Ashen hill, Priddy. Its just off the edge of the great Stockhill fairy woods. A place of outstounding natural beauty..
All the hills in this area are dotted by ancient burial mounds. This clearly is a place that our ancestors deemed sacred, a place of respect.
Interestingly the soil here is only a few inches deep, the ground you walk on is the same ground that people have walked on for 5 thousand years and more. Walking around these hills does without a doubt, give you a real sense of timeless nature of our historic past.
Priddy nine barrows and the Ashen hill barrows are amongst the oldest in the area. Nestled alongside are the famous priddy circles.. If ancient sacred ground is your thing its well worth a visit.
