A winter ride to Fleam Dyke on the Dursley Pedersen

I took a spin out of Cambridge today to Fleam Dyke on the Dursley Pedersen. Fleam Dyke is an Anglo-Saxon defensive earthwork although it seems to have been built on much earlier foundations. Even though when one is standing on the Bronze-Age barrow Mutlow Hill you can hear the very modern traffic on the A14 somehow one is transported back to an earlier time.

Here for your enjoyment are just a few photos from the ride.
