Chastleton Barrow (Fort)



Visited 6.8.11

I cut across field from the minor road leading to the village of Chastleton although in hindsight I should have taken the public footpath from near Hill Farm – I am sure it would have been a lot easier!
The site itself is in pretty good condition. A single bank surrounds a near perfect circle. From the inside the bank is about 1.5 metres high / 3 metres from the outside.
The entire bank is fairly overgrown with trees / bushes and nettles.
It appears the site is now used as a stable. There were a couple of beautiful brown horses present – who chose to ignore me!
Worth a look when in the area.
