Close up of tiles,upon consultation they don't look like typical Roman ones.
It looked very old to me, so I investigated and they say 2,500 years .
First mentioned in 1807 (what took so long)and has a girth of 31feet  2inches.
and its a female whatever that means.
Forgive me ,but do I detect incorrect usage?

ROUGH COMMON CANTERBURY














Rough Common east of the City of Canterbury,dates back to Roman times and is mostly flat(good)with excellent paths and a nice mixture of trees that are well looked after.Parking is good,and we met a few volunteer loggers who were taking out birch trees to give the others a chance.
Weather was CAVOK a window of blue skies in a week of rain.
Failed to get lost today,good prep with maps and satellite pictures helped.
A walk that we will return to ,possibly when the snow lay on the ground.
5 of us 5.5 miles sunny
