The Blackdown Rings




We went to the Blackdown Rings, an ancient iron age hill fort near the hamlet of Hazelwood  in South Devon, between the moors and the sea. It's 185 metres  (607 feet) above sea level and you get this incredible 360 degree panorama which I tried to photograph and didn't quite manage, but you get the idea. From the top of the central earth works you can sea as far as Dartmoor and Hay Tor to the north and the coast and Bolt Head to the south. Its one of those glorious places that on a sunny day like today with a strong gusting wind, takes your breath away.
