Visited 14.8.10
Not a lot to report from this visit.
I took the aptly named Camp lane through Oldbury-On-Severn and parked near the public footpath sign. The footpath appears to go through someones yard and then into a field. At the top of the field is a stile and a small wooden 'bridge'. There was nothing obvious to see and clearly the site has been largely ploughed out. However, to the right of the 'bridge', where the back of the house gardens end, there is a ditch like chanel overgrown with bushes / brambles etc.
I do not know if this is all that is left of the Hillfort or not? It is in the right area but I can't be sure. I couldn't see any other remains.
