This is a bit of a disapointment to visit, as the major northern pair of ditches and banks are fenced off on private property. Also it's heavily wooded. However it is of significance in terms of it's location on a prominence above a river, this is unusual in Dorset. It consists of two sets of ramparts and ditches on the north and west sides, the southern edge has only a small bank as the drop to the river Stour is very steep at this point. The interior of the hillfort now houses various buildings owned the girl guides, and used as a campsite.
Dudsbury Camp, an ancient site overlooking the Stour, from which the Ancient Britons guarded the ford across the river.
Although Dudsbury was named after a Saxon called Dude, it was first fortified by men 150 years before the birth of Christ. Today it is still a camp, but for a more friendly people. Girl Guides fill its vast sward each summer with giggling girls singing around camp fires.
