Find out about the rich and varied past of Maiden Castle, one of Britain’s finest Iron Age hillforts, with archaeologist Steve Wallis.
On this relaxed guided walk, we will head up through the impressive ramparts to the top of the hillfort learning what this place meant to people through the ages. Evenings are one of the best time to visit as the sun starts to drop in the sky lighting up the ramparts creating beautiful shadows.
Suitable for All (14+)
NB: Route will follow unmade paths and fields and in some places is uneven. Include some hills and steeper sections on the return. An alternative route to avoid the steep sections will be available if required.
