Aka Mount Badon..... where the legendary King Arthur won his most famous battle. It took us 3 hours to walk there & back from Bath Abbey... & though we stopped for a teabreak, we don't dawdle!
It proved to be a good legstretch through the city centre, the suburbs, up the hill then... finally... through sticky mud to reach the plateau. The plateau is large & flat enough to accommodate a village.
The views from the top of the Iron Age hillfort were well worth it. The Romans would have fought a 12ft pallisade on top of the earthworks.... well before Arthur's time. It's an excellent strategic viewpoint.... & makes a good walk.
The minuses were - a complete lack of signage - fortunately, we had our own Bath A-Z. There is limited parking, if you know where to look & are prepared for a steep 5 mins walk & some mud! If you're in a wheelchair, or need facilities: you'll need to be creative.
