The familar landscape of the the Downs - round barrows or tumuli with beech trees
The Ridgeway - Britain's ancient trackway, passes close to Swindon at Barbury Castle and Chiseldon.
Nature is flourishing in the nooks and crannies around the old part of Swindon. The aim of this blog is to illustrate a different Swindon where the 'magic roundabout' plays no part. An enchanting Swindon that can only be discovered on foot. A place of underground springs and streams, ancient hedgerows, footpaths, copses, lakes, and beautiful parkland. If you look a little more closely you will see Swindon is built on sacred ground.
