Visit this ancient hill fort and the surrounding country park in England's scenic North Wessex Downs area. Retrace journeys along paths used for thousands of years to visit the Barrows and ancient burial sites of Wiltshire.
This Iron Age hillfort has a double ditch surrounded by unimproved chalk grassland. This was the site of a battle where Cynric defeated the Britons in 556AD. There are spectacular views right across the Marlborough Downs.
There is a large car park, picnic benches and toilets. The country park is managed by Swindon Borough Council.
