Banbury Hill Hillfort

Banbury Hill Hillfort
Description and Information

Banbury Hill Hillfort is an archaeological site that contains the remains of an Iron Age hillfort, which was likely built for defensive purposes. The site is enclosed by a roughly circular bank that is 15 meters wide and 0.5 meters high, with an external ditch that is 8 meters wide and 1.5 meters deep. The entire area within the hillfort’s boundaries spans 1.2 hectares (3 acres), and there is an entrance on the western side.

Unfortunately, the site has suffered some damage over the years due to ploughing and quarrying, which has reduced its original shape and structure. Despite this, Banbury Hill Hillfort remains an important piece of history and a fascinating archaeological site to explore.
