Castle Hill (Huddersfield)



Few hill forts of central Britain can rival Almondbury. It must have been a significant regional capital in it's day, commanding views for miles around, clearly showing where the boss lives.

Almondbury is one of Englands few vitrified hill forts, the suggestion that it was a result of spontaneous combustion makes it unique - only one other fort in France has had the same claim.
