Caesar's Camp (Aldershot) (Hillfort) — Fieldnotes

Easier Access

Since it was showing a glimmering of Spring we decided to set out for this hillfort. Having read the notes about access we opted to try from the South. Parking in the street at Upper Hale we walked onto the common and across a sandpit. We started seeing the "Water Catchment Area" signs once we had crossed the sandpit but they applied to an area of woodland that is on three sides of the hillfort so you can walk up to and around the fort without crossing into the signed area.

It was good to visit on such a clear day, wonderful views from the top and it's great when a site is actually recognisable from descriptions like the scheduled monument record. The drop on the North is particularly impressive.
