Walk in Vernditch Chase 4th March 2017

On a sunny Saturday we ventured into Vernditch Chase on the northern edge of Martin Down Nature Reserve. Hidden within the Medieval woodland we discovered the story of two Neolithic Long Barrows, examined the changes in the Bronze Age Grims Ditch, marvelled at the Roman Road of the Ackling Dyke, and finally learnt about the saxon estate of Damerham and how the Saxon Charter which defined its boundary can still be traced on the ground.
