Buzbury Rings

Hillfort

Miscellaneous

More a secure area for animals and people , this is not a major defensive structure. It is very strongly believed to have originally been a neolithic causwayed enclosure , added to over a considerable period of time. Fairly elaborate structures dating from c.1000 b.c.e have been seen in a large geophysical survey of the site. The ancient track from Badbury rings was "romanised" and Buzbury was occupied during the roman period.It is now clipped on its northern edge by a modern road and is part of a golf course , it can be clearly seen from the road. I'm not sure about access , but will try and find out as I want to visit the site properly and not just look at it from my car window , hopefully more information will follow soon including some photos. formicaant Posted by formicaant
