Perched on a hill top above the slowly meandering river Avon, Clearbury Rings commands stunning views over rolling chalk downland and rich pastoral land flanking the Avon. It's Iron Age earthworks remain impressive, with the rampart measuring over 6m from bank top to ditch bottom in places and 2m or more from bank top to the occupied area within. In the period before 43AD in would have been a Durotriges stronghold bordering lands controlled by the Belgiae.
