My third (and last) Herefordshire Hillfort of the day and by far the best view.
Taking a minor road north out of Ledbury (pretty market town and well worth a visit) you come to the entrance drive to Kilmory House on your left. There is a small are to park directly opposite near the public footpath sign. Over the gate and a short easy walk up to the top of the small hill. The very top of the hill is covered by trees and the centre of the earthwork was covered in chest high nettles so I decided a view from the tress was best! There were decent views to be had and you can just make out Ledbury in the distance. I returned to the road and walked a bit further north to the next field gate where you can make out small earthworks at the top of the hill. There was no public access to this field and it didn't look like there was a lot to see.
This seemed to me to be much more an 'enclosure' of some sort rather than a Hillfort.
