Roddenbury Hill



This small univallate fort is smothered in trees but its location cries out for a camp and is very obvious from local vantage points like Cley Hill, and it overlooks Longleat. The ramparts are in the shape of a round-cornered triangle, and in one place the 1.6m bank and 1.8m ditch create an impressive defence. There's been some sand quarrying which has disturbed the earthworks and the inside, which according to the SMR on Magic was probably carried out in the 19th century. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
