A bright Saturday morning walk in the countryside. Between Nether Wallop and Stockbridge Hampshire is Danebury Rings an Iron Age Hill Fort it is open to the public and in the care of the council. It was built around 550 BC and remained a regional centre until the 1st century when the Romans reached the area. By 50 AD the site appeared to have been abandoned. The fort covers some 31 acres; some 7 acres are within the ramparts.
