Warbstow Bury
Warbstow Bury
This hillfort is a barrow with several rings of earth mound fortification, large enough to hold livestock. It is in the care of North Cornwall District Council. Their information board describes it as the second largest, and best preserved, Iron Age hill fort in Cornwall. It also has verses from "Trebarrow" by Robert Stephen Hawker including:
"Did the wild blast of battle sound,
Of old, from yonder lonely mound?
Race of Pendragon! did ye pour,
On this dear earth, your votive gore?".
(See Anglo Celtic Poetry
