'Visited' 30.7.11

Looking at the O/S map (and having Sophie and Dafydd with me) this was never going to be more than a 'drive by visit' with a view from afar.
I drove along the minor road between the hamlets of Uffington and Upton Magna (decent road for a change) and parked at a convenient field gate.
Looking up across the fields the sheer cliff which forms the southern defences of the Hillfort is very impressive – no chance of anyone coming that way!
If you want a closer look, there appears to be a forest track leading to the site from the east?
