Cadbury Castle

1 miles (1.5 km)

Climb to this Iron Agehillfort on Cadbury Hill on this short walk in Somerset. The hill is thought to be the site of King Arthur's Camelot and has a fascinating history. From the high points there are wonderful views over the surrounding Somerset countryside.
You can start the walk from the car park just off Chruch Lane to the east of the hill. You then pick up the footpath on Castle Lane to take you up and around the ramparts of the hill fort. It's a splendid spot with far reaching views over the beautiful woodland and countryside below.
The hill is on the Leland Trail long distance footpath so you have the option of starting your walk from the village of North Cadbury and heading south along the trail to visit the castle. You could also extend your walk by heading west through the countryside to Queen Camel.
You can visit the hill by bike by cycling along National Cycle Network route 266 from Castle Cary or along route 26 from Sherborne.
