Hambledon Hill
Hambledon Hill
This picture shows the old chalk pit cut into the north side of Hambledon Hill.
The chalk pit (disused) cuts right through the iron age hill fort which gives the top of Hambledon Hill such character. The old chalk pit is however a great habitat for lots of small colourful snails.
Hambledon Hill was a training site for General James Wolfe's troops before they stormed the Heights of Abraham to defeat the French in Quebec in 1759.
