Barbury Castle, Wiltshire


  • Located in Chiseldon, Wiltshire, South West England, England
  • Built by the Celts well over two thousand years ago in the sixth century BC as a defence against warring tribes
  • An eleven acre site with deep ditches and tall ramparts
  • Another hill fort, Liddington Camp, can be seen four miles away to the north east and then beyond that can be seen the scarp face of the downs at Uffington White Horse on White Horse Hill
  • Within Barbury Castle Country Park and on the The Ridgeway National Trail
  • From an information board on site: 'Hillforts such as Barbury were a residence and a symbol of power for the tribal elite of the Iron Age. As well as their defensive function they would have also have served the nearby settlements, farmers and passing drovers as part of their social, economic, political and ritual lives.'
