Ascent Trip Report

This hill is a Cretaceous outcrop topped by an Iron Age multivallate Durotrigian hill fort and is owned and managed by the National Trust. Thought to be the highest point in Dorset until relatively recently. Although 2 metres lower than Lewesdon Hill it is arguably much more interesting and certainly has much better views. The 2 hills are very close to each other and a paired ascent is recommended.
