Uffington Castle

Uffington Castle, on White Horse Hill, is an impressive Iron Age hill fort, once protected by timber walls on top of the surviving banks and ditches. The castle was excavated in 1850 when evidence of the wooden structure was found, along with an Iron Age coin of the Dobunni tribe.
Some believe that the castle marks the site of the battle of Badon, Arthur’s great victory over the Saxons.
