The views of the Malvern Hills in the evenings must have been awe-inspiring, particularly as there was a river between them so going to investigate may have taken quite some time.
An enclosure indicates an agriculturally-based community so where is the settlement that worked that land?

Belief systems in the Neolithic meant that the sunsets were a magical border between this world and the next. Living next to the river (Severn) gave them all they needed for an agricultual life.
