Just a quickie. I was down in Bath on Friday so thought I'd pay a quick visit to Writhlington. I'm not sure if anyone else has been there recently, but the site is extremely difficult (and dangerous) to access. Although this is a recognised publicly accessible site (I even found it on the Natural England website) I would not recommend visiting it. I tried my best to follow the directions given on the locations page, but I'm not convinced that any of the paths I used were official rights of way. Worse still was the bridge I used to cross the stream - yikes! When I did eventually find the site it was very overgrown, and finds were very thin on the ground (nothing worth taking home) .
Hi guys, thanks for your replies. The spoil (for want of a better word) has been ploughed into ridges and furrows, its just it doesn't look as though its been turned for ages. I dare say if you brought a trowel or something similar you could find some decent stuff if you had a poke around. I guess I just expected it would be easier to find stuff there (like Offerton e.g.). I don't want to put anyone off visiting (you may have better luck than me), just that if you do decide to go, buy a good OS map, and plan your route well in advance. I'm sure there must be a better way in than the locations page suggests.
