SP8807 : The West End of Boddington Banks

taken 9 years ago, near to Wendover, Buckinghamshire, Great Britain

The West End of Boddington Banks
The West End of Boddington Banks
Boddington Hill is a spur that juts out from the main body of the Chiltern Hills. As a result the land falls off steeply on three sides. This makes it an ideal defensible position for a hill fort. This picture shows the defensive bank at the west end of the ancient camp. Originally there was probably a more noticeable ditch at this point.
