On Twyford Down

Looking SE from the "dongas" trackway

Looking N from the golf course

One thing that has impressed me as I collate my photographs of the St. Catherine's / Viaduct / Twyford "triangle" is how diverse the landscape of Twyford Down is.  Although at heart a typical square mile or two of chalk downland, the different types of land use -- grassland, cultivated fields, wooded slopes, a golf course, and various "edgelands" where road and rail routes pass through -- mean that a very different prospect lies before you, depending on which path you have followed, in which month, and in which direction you are facing.

Looking S over the golf course

Looking W across the London mainline and the M3 sliproad
