Danebury Hill Fort

Fair Weather Cloud
There is a big sky at the top of Danebury Iron Age Hill Fort.  It sits just above the pretty little town of Stockbridge in Hampshire.  Thoroughly dug by archaeologists and well documented it has a lot to offer.  There are beautifully cleared gravel paths around the top and wooden steps where the going is steep.  It is a very Hampshire experience.

I enjoyed it, but for atmosphere nothing beats Sidbury Hill, my local fort where climbing can be tough and you almost need a machete to walk around the top.
