Starting from Cadbury Castle, walk through a medieval landscape, with ancient trackways, settlements and terraces. From two ridges you get fabulous views of the hill fort at Cadbury Castle and of the Somerset Levels. On a good day Glastonbury Tor is clearly visible from the high point at Beacon Hill.

Before or after your walk, take time out to explore Cadbury Castle with its massive defences. It is supposedly the location of Arthur's Camelot. Whether or not it was the seat of this legendary king, it has certainly been a major regional centre from the Stone Age through to Saxon times. It is one of the biggest hill forts in Somerset.
