|Visited with daughter and 3 year old grandson. Very chilly and breezy day. Loads of dog walkers but with that no sign of dog poo or rubbish of any kind. Walked around the hill fort, nice paths, lovely trees and horses roaming on part of it.
Toilet block a little icky.||Angel Lisa||11/03/2019|

|I wonder what additions to this most studied iron age fort in Europe we are leaving behind for future archaeologists to puzzle over in 2000 years time? Perhaps preserved imprints of dog footprints of all sizes (it was dog walking central on my visit); and the odd wayward plastic poo bag no doubt? Maybe some remains of the flushing loo block used by us humans - fascinating. An overflowing litter bin - a future Pandora's box of intrigue? And the puzzling remains of a small concrete mini pyramid (aka a trig pillar) surrounded by eroded ground, caused it will be assumed, by pilgrims coming from far and wide to touch it - whatever for? Spiritual enlightenment perhaps? A hill bagging theory will no doubt be scoffed at as nonsensical, unless a diligent researcher of the future discovers this ancient website from the primitive internet age. And to confound it the trig is not even on the highest point. And then of course what will they leave behind...?||Chris Pearson||05/12/2016|

|Walked up from car park, past trig pillar to hill fort summit area. Natural high ground with reasonably obvious summit mound. Good views east, all other areas obscured by surrounding trees.||jonglew||14/01/2015|
|My first visit to Danebury, but I have revisited at least another two times. Great example of an Iron Age Hill fort||nathanjhunt||02/01/2014|
|On my grand tour of Britain, I visited this lovely hillfort with my friend Soesen, and had a picnic! Museum of the Iron Age in Andover is worth looking at for context after, if it still exists.||DanHolme||04/02/2005|
