About the event

Eggardon Hill iron age hillfort may be not as well-known as its big brother Maiden Castle, it arguably has the best views in the Dorset AONB!

Join archaeologist Steve Wallis to explore its impressive defences and a variety of other prehistoric remains on and around it.

The walk has been timed in the hope of seeing the seven other hillforts in the area looking their best around sunset, bringing our Dorset, from Dawn to Dusk to a stunning close.

Suitable for All (14+)

NB: Route will follow un made paths and fields and is uneven in places.

Distance approx. 2miles.
