Cadbury Hill Walk

Sunday 2nd April 2017

As far as I’m aware, Cadbury Hill near Yatton is the one former hillfort site that’s closest to my home in Wrington.

For a number of reasons, I’d not been there since February 2013. On this walk, I’d set off from my doorstep, leaving the car alone to head for its summit.

But it was while out walking the woods of the Congresbury Estate last weekend, that I encountered a boundary stone that was unlike many others I had seen around the country.
