Bury Ditches

Bury Ditches, located a few miles outside Bishops Castle¬†and Clun is an impressive iron age hill fort on a beautiful site managed by the Forestry Commission. The ditches themselves are comprised of four massive earthwork ramparts and you can walk around the perimeter and really get a feel for what it would have been like in the iron age. Needless to say the views from the top of Bury Ditches are fantastic, stretching out to Clee Hill, Wenlock Edge and the Stiperstones. The fort was ‘rediscovered’ in 1976 when a storm felled a number of trees at the summit and the ramparts where revealed.
