Eggardon Hillfort credit_Heather-Snow

Iron Age hillfort at the western end of the chalk ridge, overlooking the Marshwood Vale. The hollows in the interior are probably the remains of Iron Age grain storage pits.

There are views from here of seven other hill forts on a clear day, as well as the Powerstock Hills and Marshwood Vale.
