Went to meet up with @kirky, but he stood me up.
The highest place in South East Britain.
Walbury Camp is an Iron Age hillfort situated on Walbury Hill, south of the village of Inkpen. It is one of the larger hillforts and is spread over 33 hectares.
The Wayfarer’s Walk which joins the Mid Wilts Way at Ham passes through its centre. It can be also accessed by road with car parks at both its western and eastern ends.
The summit of Walbury Hill which lies within the hillfort is at 297 metres the highest point on the North Wessex Downs, and the western end of the hillfort offers a remarkable panorama to the north. Some 500 yards to the west of the hillfort is Combe Gibbet on Gallows Down. The gibbet, now a modern replica, was erected in 1676 to exhibit the bodies of George Broomham and Dorothy Newman, lovers, who were hanged at Winchester for the murder of Broomham’s wife Martha.
