About Cley Hill

Once part of the Longleat estate, the hill was entrusted to us by the 6th Marquess of Bath.

Ascend the hill to enjoy extensive views of West Wiltshire and Somerset, or to experience uninterrupted views of the sky from this locally famous UFO hotspot.
 
Explore the botanically rich chalk downland and discover an abundance of wild flowers teeming with insect life. The site is also significant for its geology and archaeology. It was formed by ancient seas and it's been shaped by man since its prehistoric role of guarding territorial boundaries, through to more recent farming and quarrying.
