Approached from east- where easy to park on verge. A grass- covered hillfort with ditches and embankments in flower- filled meadow. HP is on embankment.The evening light highlighted the rings of the nearby Beacon Hill. Approach includes attractive lane of old beech and crossing land apparently owned by Andrew Lloyd Weber.Denise 19/09/2017

A 6 hill,15 km jog/walk circular in 2:50 from Old Burghclere. After Watership Down. Lovely low afternoon sunlight giving great colours to the leaves and distinct red colouring to the bodies of red kites flying low overhead. Here is 'perhaps the best known of all of the unfinished hillforts in Britain' which has apparantly been invaluable in helping archeologists understand the methods employed in the creation of Iron Age date univallate (single bank and ditch) enclosures.Chris Pearson12/10/2016
