Clearbury Rings

The sky was hued heavy grey and rain lashed down as I approached Clearbury Ring through drenched knee high undergrowth. Clearbury sits in chalk grassland just beyond the forest to the North; a top a tree crowned hill, this ancient Hillfort commands views over the Avon valley. It has single ditch and rampart (although a slighter outer bank is visible on the Southern side) and dates from the Iron Age; one of several in the area belonging to the Durotriges.
