Yesterday we took Harry for a walk up Highdown Hill.
Very popular with dog walkers; it is relatively quiet these days compared to its excited and varied past- Iron age fort, Saxon burial ground, alleged resting place of Saxon King Aella – you know he was there with King Arthur at the battle at Mount Badon. Oh, that King Aella…..I looked all this up by the way. And the Romans had baths up there.

Anyway it was lovely, perfect – the kind of day that makes me know I could never live anywhere else in the world apart from England.
