Coney's Castle
Coney's Castle
Inside on the level of Coney's Castle, an Iron Age hill fort, the grass grows long in summer and woodland trees grow on the outer banks and in the middle.
The word Coney brings to mind rabbits but there is a possibility that the castle was named after Konig or King - King Egbert was here when he lost the battle with the Danes at Charmouth in 833.
