Castle Naze



This Iron Age hill fort isn't far from the Bull Ring in DoveHoles and it's definitely worth seeing.
After passing DoveHoles Railway Station there's a single track turn on the left. After a couple of miles there's a tall Chapel-en-le-Frith Parish sign, and room for a car. From here it's a short steep climb up to the fort.
The ramparts and ditch are very impressive and the views are unbelievable. An Iron Age fort it underwent several changes to the fortifications and the stonework in the ramparts is still visible in parts. What a place....
