Cadbury Hill Camp, Congresbury, Somerset

Cadbury Hill Camp hillfort is an Iron Age univallate enclosure. The ramparts are thought to have been timber framed, and enclose roughly 8.5 acres of land.The original entrance is in the South-East, and probably had guard chambers. Like Cadbury Castle, Cadbury Hill Camp was reoccupied and reinforced in the immediate post-Roman period – this time with stone faced rather than timber faced ramparts. Speculation has been made about the site holding early Christian significance, but this has not been borne out by the archaeology.
One of three hillforts named Cadbury – the others are Cadbury Castle, and Cadbury Camp.
