To the west you can see south Wales and the Brecon Beacons, and follow the Severn Estuary up to the two bridges.
It was once part of the Clevedon Court estate belonging to the Elton family, but its history goes back much further. Archaeological evidence shows use of the site from Neolithic times up to the 1940s.
The Iron Age hill fort was constructed and occupied from the 6th-century BC to the mid-1st century AD.
The limestone grassland has never been affected by modern farming methods, making it a good spot to see a variety of wild flowers.
The gentle grass banks of Cadbury Camp are not a natural feature of the landscape but were created by man and once lived in by ancestors about whom there are only a few clues.
