Your next stop is Clapham Junction. Clapham Junction is covered with very puzzling and mysterious groove in the rock. They appear to be ancient roadways of some sort. They do not appear to be directly linked to the building of any of Malta's megalithic and they do cross the small island and seem to be found on the higher and rockier surfaces. There can be many of them in the same area, beside each other. Sometimes they are a solitary pair that can go on for miles. One of the mysteries and frustrations of Malta's ancient and magnificent history is that there are no records left of it by those people. No written word or pictorial guide was left by the Temple Builders and Cart Rut users.
Yourwill then drive toTheBuskett Gardens, located in thefertile valley of Wied il-Luq, Siggiewi. The gardens are at theirbest in Spring but they offer shade from the harsh mid-Summer sun and offer a quiet place for a walk in the Wintermonths.
