Bike and field
This mound was built by Sir Arthur Evans, the archeologist who excavated Knossos. Formerly it gave a good view of Oxford, but as you can see the trees have grown up around it.
This looks like it used to have swings hanging from the wings. It was at a farm that had a range of animals--deer, llamas, sheep, cattle, horses, and a pair of rheas.
Oxford is in the distant background.
