Crickley Hill is of great archaeological significance. It has an early Iron Age camp with a still impressive rampart enclosing an area of around nine acres. There are three stages of re-building, the third of which added bastion towers and hornwork to strengthen the entrance. Nearby lies what is possibly the highest section of an Iron Age wall in England still standing at some twelve feet high.

Many interesting archaelogical finds have been unearthed including pottery, flint and metal work.

Crickley Hill has now been designated a country park and is popular with ramblers, dog walkers and families alike. Our photographs show the spectacular autumn colours in the woodland walks.
