Poundbury Hillfort



This is my favourite hillfort of the Durotriges in Dorset , probably because I grew up within a 100 yards of it and have been there hundreds of times . It was very nearly destroyed in the mid victorian era to make way for a railway to Bath , thank god common sense prevailed and the railway runs under it's northern end in a tunnel. Dr Stukeley included it his itinerarium curiesum and gave the alternative name of Pomery. formicaant Posted by formicaant
