Here you will see a large Iron Age hillfort, which in the Dark Ages may have been a key battle site between ancient Celtic people of Britain and the encroaching Anglo-Saxons, and an almost forgotten firing range, used to prepare Britain's secret resistance fighters for invasion during the Second World War.
Badbury Hill is an area of woodland with great views of the Thames flood plain to the north and the historic market town of Faringdon to the east.
The remains of an Iron Age hill fort from about 600BC are close to the car park in Badbury Clump, famous for its beech trees and bluebells.
