# Extra Interesting Information below

#0 Wolstonbury The height of this chalk promontory is 225 metres = 738.2 feet. Wolstonbury was an ancient Bronze age enclosure and then an Iron age fort and you may cross the ditches as you enter.
#1 Danny house was built between 1593-95 (see There is a Roman pavement and a well preserved ice house in the grounds. Danny House was the scene of a meeting of the Imperial War Cabinet, including such luminaries as David Lloyd George and Winston Churchill, and it was from here that the decision was made to negotiate the armistice with Germany. Many say the members of the war cabinet sought inspiration in the slopes of Wolstonbury.
#2 Hollow of Grundarft The hollow of Grundarf was believed to be an ancient collapsed truffle mine. The rumour goes that Grundarft was mining near the surface and dislodged the key truffle which brought the whole mine down around his giant ears. These days you may see some swings in the trees where the gnomes swing during feast days and full moons. You may see some charcoal in the bottom too from the remains of one of their hog roasts.
#3 Tree of Grimsdyke Practical joker grimsdyke lops occasional branches across the path to try to catch ramblers and cachers unawares. He watches from the trees so if you spin round quickly you can oft see the red of his eyes.
#4 Stile of Climbee This stileis a national gnome monument. It is perfectly aligned to the mid summer rise of Uranus. If you climb upon it and sit astride it is supposed to enhance your fertility. At least that was Miss Ellies excuse for the pitter patter of tinee gum boots.
#5 Tree of Prophecy This tree is older that the soil in which it stands. If you have any questions about anything at all you will find an answer from the tree. Circumnavigate the tree seven times clockwise with your fingers touching the tree as you go and each time asking your question The answer is sure to be delivered before the next blue moon.
#6 Tree of Destiny The tree of Destiny grants wishes to those who ask and truly Make your wish and end it with the ancient words Garde Ta Foy – keep the faith.
