Wittenham Clumps

At the weekend I went to Wittenham clumps with my friend Ben,
Wittenham Clumps is the name for a pair of wooded chalk hills, Castle hill and Round Hill, in South Oxfordshire.
The site is looked after by Earth Trust 

Panoramic view from Round Hill 

We started our walk by a church and followed along the river for a while before heading into the woodlands.
The trees are just starting to change colour and the wood was full of fungi. Underneath woodpiles we found Beetles and Centipedes. There is also a Newt pond in the middle of the wood.

Birds were calling from the trees above and Dragonflies whizzed around but that was the only wildlife we saw, probably because we were making to much noise. My favourite part of the afternoon was building dens in a tree.

From the top of Round Hill there was a fantastic view of the Thames Valley. We could make out Didcot Power Station, The JR Hospital and Culham Lab.

Round Hill is 390 metres above sea level and great fun to run all the way down.
