Explore one of the best preserved Hillforts in the country. This late Bronze Age landmark is about 3000 years old and full of magic
After you admired the heaviest decking stone in Europe (more than 100t) you might be able to answer: how did this rock get onto the portal stones more than 3000 years ago?
