Archaeological walks and visits 2013

We are planning another series of walks in 2013. To date the events are:

Hackpen Hill and Segsbury Camp Saturday 8th June 2013
Meet at 10am in the car park about 100m north of where the Ridgeway crosses the B4001 (NGR SU 3430 8515). We will walk over Hackpen Hill, a Bronze Age site surveyed by Andrew Hutt and excavated by Bob Brewer, who has agreed to accompany us over the site. From there we will walk along the edge of the Downs and down to Letcombe Bassett, for a beer at Letcome Regis. From we will climb to Segsbury Camp, an Iron Age hillfort, and then back along the Ridgeway to Hackpen Hill. This is a distance of some 8 miles. Please come with weatherproof clothing, strong comfortable footwear and a packed lunch.
If you want to come on this walk please register your interest with Andrew Hutt by sending an email to
