Wonderful Iron Age fort enclosing 16 acres with entrances to the east and west. Unusually, it has a concentric ditch within. Walked the full encirclement, claiming the surface block as we did so. Good views over the Avon Valley with Salisbury Cathedral prominent.

2.5" bolt in block, slightly tatty from trampling, obvious on path along top of earth rampant. Impressive place

Located on the western side of the hillfort ramparts with very good views to the North, and West across the Avon valley. The surface block is a rough cast of concrete with its bolt in the centre, very easy to spot. The hillfort is unusual in that it has an inner ditch cut at a regular distance from the main ramparts. NT car park to the east or alternatively there is parking to the NW in Winterbourne Dauntsey near the railway line, with a walk along the Monarch way to the trig.

The non pillar trig, SU31 T338, is situated on the north western rampart of an ancient earthwork on the edge of the downs to the north east of Salisbury. The trig consists of a two inch diameter bolt set into a rough two foot square surface block. The scheduled ancient monument is owned by the National Trust and there is a car park at the end of a bumpy lane to the east. A circuit of the outer embankment is rewarded with extensive views of the surrounding downs. From the trig the spire of Salisbury Cathedral could be seen emerging from the valley to the south west with the West Wiltshire Downs in the distance. Gently rolling downland stretches into the distance towards the interior of Salisbury Plain to the north west and Beacon Hill is to the north. Porton Down could be seen to the north east. The site has been designated a SSSI.
