Quarley Hill



Quarley is a univallate iron age hill-fort with well defined entrances at north-east and south-west.
Lovely site commanding great views all around. Lots of prehistoric activity in area including large ditches radiating from the hillfort believed to be part of a bronze age farming settlement and a barrow cemetery about a mile away to the north. The best view of the site is as you drive past on the A303 going west but alas not ideal for stopping to take a piccie.
