“Stunning views of Wiltshire”

Roundway Down Iron Age Hill Fort
Reviewed August 16, 2017

This just is a beautiful area to walk around and with a clear day you will surprised how far you can see out into the Wiltshire countryside. I often walk here and always find something to amaze me. The rolling hills are wonderful to see. Enjoy.

If you are riding your bike along the canal at Devises an absolute must is to pedal to the village of Roundway and from there up the steep hill to the top of the downs. Riding along the byway the white stony road it gave us a very good view of the whole battle field where in 1643 the Parliamentarians lost to the Royalists.
We are not permitted to ride over Oliver's Castle but we were able to lift the bikes over the gate, and walk them to see the fantastic views of Devises and where hundreds of Parliamentary horsemen rode over and down the steep hill to their deaths on that terrible day.
Although many things change over time, the layout of the land usually stays the same, and reading the information boards that are dotted about the area, it is easy to work out what happened in the battle.
