Castle Dykes Roman Villa

This earthwork was partially excavated in 1870, these revealed the foundations for a Roman villa of obvious opulence. It’s final Roman owners were believed to have suffered a grisly death as the villa burnt around them.

Bainbridge Camp – Hill Fort

The subject of much speculation and, frankly, little fact this looks like a classic hill fort to us, check out the below elevation map of the area with the hillfort showing up beautifully. We have also included elevation profiles so you, dear readers, can appreciate the classic hill top location: note how from all directions the hillfort perches nicely on the top of the highest point: visible from all directions and can see in all directions. A classic see & be seen location, achieving the twin aims of defence and impressing visitors.

Woden Law Hill Fort

Wodens Law is actually the name of the great mountain that the Hill Fort is perched upon. Ok, so its not a mountain being a mere 500m high, but in this wild and desolate landscape it looks a lot more.The facts of the fort are impressive: there are multiple levels of ditch and bank defences surrounding the peak. There are considered to be three phases of occupation: firstly, a wall enclosed a substantial occupation area, this dated to the first century AD.
