Yesterday I spent a couple of hours showing a researcher for a Welsh Channel Four (S4C) natural history programme around parts of the Teign Valley. In May S4C are coming back to Dartmoor to make a programme with Iolo Williams. As I understand it the programme will be in Welsh and only shown in Wales. One of the places we visited was Wooston Castle, here are a few photos from a rather overcast morning.
Wooston Castle was built in the Iron Age c 1000 BC – here is part of the ring ditch
Pretty major excavations – at the moment we don’t know exactly how Wooston Castle functioned – as it exists in a landscape with at least 2 other Iron Age Hills Forts nearby
Inside the ditches – the place where people would have lived – now inhabited by pearl bordered fritillaries and managed by the National Trust and the Woodland Trust
