Blackbury Camp, Southleigh, Colyton, Devon

Surrounded by native woodland, Blackbury Camp near Colyton in East Devon dates back to the 4th century BC and was used for hundreds of years as an Iron Age Fort as can be seen by its impressive ramparts. It’s a peaceful place, great for dog walks and picnics and is spectacular in the spring when the bluebells are out. There’s a car park but it’s not huge, and remember that it can be muddy underfoot in the winter or after rainfall so wear appropriate footwear. Flip-flops just won’t cut it.
