Small free public car park. Land owned by a Trust with public access. Interesting ancient embankments ? 400 BC reused by the Normans over 1000 years later. Topograph on summit. By bicycle. Great views. If hills could talk....Denise 22/12/2018
Walked around the hillfort and motte and bailey in the rain. The high point seemed to be in the Norman part of the site. However, the grid reference given is on the other side of the road so I also wandered around the area near the covered reservoir.Herbert Anchovy20/08/2017
