Bindon Hill Hillfort, Dorset.

Bindon Hill hillfort is an Iron Age complex comprising a massive bank over 1.5 miles in length running the length of Bindon Hill, and cutting off access to Lulworth Cove. A cross-ridge dyke cuts off approx 12 acres (around 5 hectares) of the West end of the hill, forming a smaller enclosure. It is thought that these works were never finished. Described by Brown (2009) as the ‘largest hillfort in England and Wales’. (1)
