Has historic significance, good views from the top. Local important earthworks. Spoilt by too many dog walkers, parking for 3-4 cars. Poor information board.

Oswestry hill fort provides a good walk with excellent views from its upper rampart. Information boards give a comprehensive summary of the history of the hill fort and explain the place it has in pre Roman history.

Okay, so it's a hill, with grass and heather, but take a closer look. The ridges around it are remarkably well preserved for something 3000 years old. The climb to the top is well worth the views, and the boards make for interesting reading.

The hill fort is a lovely place, very quiet and great views. I like to walk my dig up there and you often see walkers having a nose at the information sign about the history of the fort. You can't spend an awful lot of...More
