Wayland's Smithy

Recommended Posts

Unusual among ancient monuments in being associated with a much more recent period than its actual date. The name refers to the Anglo-Saxon smith god Wayland (somewhat similar to Vulcan/Hephaistos), but it is in fact a neolithic long barrow.

A general view:

A beech mast in a hole in one of the pylons (no idea whether it was put there by man or beast):
