Bulstrode Camp



Limited excavations were carried out here in 1924, with little success. (Records of Bucks. Vol XI p.282-288).

The excavators considered that the fragments of pottery found were 'almost certainly pre-Roman and of the Early Iron Age'. The inner rampart was found to be constructed by the simple dump method. In those days finds of charcoal were undateable and little else was discovered. This appears to be the only investigation ever made of this hill fort, despite its size and location. Its current unspectacular nature belies the way it once dominated the edge of the plateau above the valley of the Alderbourne.

Anybody interested in visiting might like to know that Gerrards Cross station is only about half a mile away, with a very good service to London (Marylebone) and to Birmingham. Also a number of bus routes pass along the A40, and the route 353 along Windsor Road stopping almost at Camp Road.
