This viewpoint is called The Temple of the Winds, named after a Bronze Age circular bank. The poet Alfred Lord Tennyson loved Black Down and must have stood on this spot many times.
This was our third visit to Black Down – click here and here to see those earlier posts. On each occasion I have photographed this view but not posted those images, which are shown below for the first time.
The real reason for going back a third time was that we expected the Heathers to be in flower and we were not disappointed. The two images below are straight out of the iPhone with a bit pf processing for Instagram where you will find me as @andyhooker.
