Wayland's Smithy
Wayland the Smith
The Ridgeway
B-83/10/44E
Just visible within this stand of trees is a low mound - the remains of a prehistoric long barrow ( burial mound ). Excavations in the 1960s revealed that a Neolithic timber chambered tomb of c 3700 BC was replaced with a stone chambered long barrow in about 3400 BC.
The name is a reference to a character of Germanic and Norse mythology, Wayland the Smith.
Situated next to the Ridgeway, above the village of Ashbury, west of Wantage.
View from the south-east.
