‘Drive by’ 19.4.13

Directions:
From Leominster take the A44 east.
Shortly after passing through Docklow there is a turning on the left for Uphampton Farm.
The Hillfort is situated on the summit of the hill behind the farm.
There is a public footpath running from Docklow, past the farm, and up past the eastern side of the Hillfort.


I didn’t have time to walk up to the Hillfort but could see the trees crowning the site from the A44.

Although marked on the O/S map E.H. strangely have nothing to say on the matter?

One for another day perhaps?

From "Herefordshire Register of Countryside Treasures" (1981 H&WCC):

"Uphampton Hill Fort, Docklow

Only a low bank, 1-2 metres high, now marks the site of what has been claimed to be an Iron-age hillfort. It has been suggested that the camp may have been started, but never completed.

Location

Along overgrown footpaths from minor road to Hatfield at E side of camp and in wood on N side of hill top between Pudlestone and Docklow."
