We visited the hill fort at Maiden Castle which is an English Hertitage site, free to visit and park.


On yonder hill you might be able to make out a 21st century settlement known to the locals as Dorch (Dorchester). Tacked on the end (left hand end in this photo) of this is another settlement called Poundland (Poundbury officially, but the non locals like to refer to it this way.)

This is the entrance to the west end.

Looking out from the West entrance towards Poundbury in the distance.

It was a fairly windy day, so bitter up on top of the well exposed hill fort, still fun was had we will certainly return.
