Holmbury Hill offers wonderful walking and spectacular Surrey Hills views. As you emerge through the trees towards the viewpoint you’ll discover the site of an Iron Age hillfort. Excavation of the hillfort in 1929 by S. E. Winbolt indicated that it dated to the 1st Century AD and may have been constructed by Belgic tribes of Celts who were settling in this part of Britain in the period prior to the Roman invasion of Britain. The fort was defended by double ramparts to the west and north with escarpments on the eastern and southern slopes.

There are good interpretation boards on the site to find out more about the history of the area.
