Maiden Castle is an Iron Age "hill fort" - actually a fortified hill-top settlement rather than what we might think of as a fort in the traditional sense. Going through several phases of development it became, at 47 acres, the largest hill fort in Britain. A walk around the ramparts gives a real impression of the vast scale of this settlement and how impregnable the defenses appear. There are no facilities on site and it is not 'wheelchair-friendly'.
