  • Really good hill fort. A lot bigger than you'd think with some really good views. Nice walk to the top from the small car park that's full of sheep and their poo. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Ancient Roman hill fort and it's massive. Free of charge to visit and park. Good for a stroll or a dog walk (gonna need a lead as sheep roam the ramparts). Great history location and fab views of Dorchester. Impressive to see the Roman workmanship and the ruins of a small villa in the middle.
