Stop 2 (A) Ancient Walls

Point of Interest Details

Our walk departs from the forest road and passes by the information point, over the small wooden bridge and gurgling stream. Here begins our boardwalk of wooden sleepers with a rubber mat surface. As the walk turns we come to stop 2 (A) which has the remains of a pre-bog wall running under the boardwalk. This wall is made up of a rough line of large rocks which has been revealed by the forestry machines travelling over the bog surface. These walls were constructed by the stone-age farmers as they cleared the fields of loose rocks and created pasture for livestock..
