Did you know?
During World War II, the camp was used as a searchlight battery to locate enemy aircraft, so they could be shot down before releasing bombs on Bristol.
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.
We have entered into a Higher Level Stewardship (HLS) agreement with Natural England to help us manage Cadbury Camp. Find out about what this means.
