Blackbury Camp

While in Devon, Frances took us to Blackbury Camp, English Heritage. An Iron Age hill fort with impressive ramparts.
A single bank and ditch forming a rough D-shaped enclosure.
This fort was probably occupied between the 1st and 2nd Century BC by a cattle farming community.
It is now surrounded by woodland.
We wandered around the fort, which would have been much higher at the time it was in use. There are many beautiful trees and flint stones.


A beautiful spot to be on this lovely sunny summer day. Not sure I fancy living there surrounded by cows!
Then on to Gittisham... (next post).
