The Mound of Down

I'm looking forward to what's become a Wednesday afternoon tradition for Charlie and me.

Elaine teaches drama in Downpatrick most Wednesdays, and we go for a walk around the Mound Of Down.

This is a spectacular earthwork, and least 2,000 years old situated right next to the town behind the Down Museum and near to the Cathedral.

There are deep ditches surrounding the site, and what could be a Motte inside. Great views can be had of Downpatrick, The Mournes, the Quoile river and Slieve Croob.

Here's some pictures taken last week:
