Bussock Camp Hillfort – North Entrance
Bussock Camp Hillfort – North Entrance, taken 8 years ago
This is part of the old double rampart and ditches at the north entrance to this iron-age hillfort LinkExternal link. The fort, built on a spur of plateau gravel, covers an area of 11 acres LinkExternal link . Today the M4 motorway, near junction 13, runs just below this north entrance to the fort but trees prevent any view of the traffic from the ramparts.
The whole area of the fort is private woodland which is used for game shooting. The makeshift ladder on top of the inner rampart is a hunter’s high seat LinkExternal link . See other views at SU4672 and Gallery at LinkExternal link
