Vespasian's Camp and Blick Mead (Hillfort) by Chance In the 18th century the hillfort became part of the landscaped gardens of the Marquess of Queensberry's house at Amesbury Abbey, later known as the Antrobus Estate. This new phase included landscaping with tree planting, ornamental walks, vistas and a grotto.
Today, trees and shrubs cover Vespasian's Camp. This legacy from the garden phase of its history is now a listed Grade II park and garden.
