Oldbury Hillfort

Oldbury Camp, as it is sometimes known, is one of the largest hillforts in the country. As you wander through the woods, you can appreciate the excellent defensive position of the hillfort on a steep-sided hill. Imagine it clear of trees and what it would have been like to be on the defence at the top, or an attacker making your way up through the ramparts.
