This is a great time of year to visit. The turf is kept short by the sheep and the long evenings allow plenty of time after work for a midweek visit or trip in the summer holidays. An earlier poster is in error - this...More

On the face-of-it there is very little to see at the site. But when you visualise the Fens before they were drained and let your imagination run wild it can be very emotional.

A good place to enjoy old time herbal remedies and imagine life before the Norman conquest. The saxons built these forts to protect their animals and people, whereas Norman castles are there to protect Normans.....end list. A study of genelogy discovered the ruling class in...More

Lovely wild site. Useful information boards. Lovely views over the fens. Use your imagination. Can't believe this is literally down a beaten track.

I agree with other reviews suggesting wellies, be prepared to walk, and you'll need your imagination. Still worth seeing. I'd also add that I was disappointed to find much of the earthen banks were built up recently, they are not original, though they are in...More

Visited the site a few times now and I'd agree with Fenlandier, it's a very interesting site and provides the ground work of a substantial camp which spanned many era's - also it's free. New sign's have this down as a Roman Camp, don't go...More
