S3E89 – The Wittenham Clumps

The Wittenham Clumps

Big clumps ahoy! The Loremen encounter two large hills, each with beech trees atop. They’re easily the top beech-tree-topped hills covered by this podcast since Chanctonbury Ring.

The clumps are steeped in history, drenched in sauce and, sadly for James, riddled with poetry. And, yes. Don’t worry, we talk about that Beatles documentary that everyone is talking about at the moment.


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.

Music from La Lettre De Manon Valse played by Megone’s Orchestra, 1905.
