Wayland’s Smithy Long Barrow

I haven’t really explored Oxfordshire much over the years, but I need to. There is so much to discover, like Wayland’s Smithy Long Barrow, which is this week’s Foto Friday. “Nice photo, but what the hell is it?”, you’re thinking, aren’t you?  Well, that’s exactly what I wondered when I first saw it.  The weather was great …
