Gaer Hill



What a great hillfort! Visited on a sunny August day (29.8.2009), walking up from Tintern. The approach from the north opens up views to the east over Gloucestershire. A WT station is situated on the summit of the hill. Passing around this a wonderful view over the Severn estuary appears, looking towards Chepstow and the Wye, the two Severn Bridges and beyond.

The fort itself is a quite small, bivallate construction. None of the ramparts or ditches are very large or deep. Definitely worth a visit though for the views alone.
