After Faringdon hill, a short drive to the National Trust car park with Lesley and after validating my card, a short walk through the middle (as the Western section of the ring is clearly lower) then exploration of ramparts.High point likely adjacent large Two-trunked Sycamore. Lovely sunshine today. Lesley enjoyed the atmosphere. Afterwards we headed over to Great Coxwell Tithe Barn which is of a stupendous size. We continued to Chedworth Roman Villa.
