Also known as Castle Grove Camp Wyfold Castle is an Iron age plateau fort. it is now overgrown with beech woods and the north side is overgrown with Rhododendron and Holly bushes. There is still an original entrance visible to the sw off the site which is offset either side of the causeway, all other entrances are modern . The best preserved part is the eastern side where there is a nice uninterrupted part of the earthwork. ginger tt Posted by ginger tt
