SU3256 : Haydown Hill and Fosbury Camp from Conholt Hill

taken 18 years ago, near to Fosbury, Wiltshire, Great Britain

Haydown Hill and Fosbury Camp from Conholt Hill
Haydown Hill and Fosbury Camp from Conholt Hill
We are looking from Conholt Hill towards Haydown Hill which is 254m above sea level. At the top of the hill is the ancient iron-age fort of Fosbury Camp with its earth ramparts and field system. So steep is the valley that the normally straight Roman road from Winchester to Cirencester makes a long curved detour. This is a very rural part of Hampshire. Traditionally sheep rearing land, farming subsidies has encouraged farmers to grow cereal, despite the meagre chalky soil.
