  • All round this visit and walk will take less than an hour. A steep walk to start but what a breathtaking achievement. Take a coat and walking shoes. Fantastic views over all the surrounding low level countryside area 5 concentric mounds and ditches. To have attacked this fort you would need massive manpower. You have to respect not just the amazing ancient engineering and earth moving but the imagination to site this fort so strategically. Best visited in fine weather with no wind - but it is very easily defendable in most conditions. I can't imagine how grim this place could become in winter!
  • It's great to see something that's still standing from almost 3000 years ago - there aren't any constructions left per se, however the sheer mount construction is impressive. It is also a great place to come for a walk (especially if you live in the area) as it's got fabulous flora (last time we went there in April, there was a plethora of purple flowers and bright yellow shrubs (shrubbery!)). You can also see for miles and miles around you once you're at the very top.
