Uley Bury
Uley Bury
An large Iron Age hill fort on a promontory at the edge of the Cotswold plateau. The site covers some 32 acres (13 hectares) and was occupied from around 300 BC to 100 AD. Its natural defensive potential was heightened by terracing the hillside, as can be seen on the right. More than just a defensive structure, this would have been a full-blown settlement - evidence of numerous houses have been found on the site, which is now used for grazing cattle.
