This limestone plateau overlooking Bath has a rich history.
Now with a golf course at its centre, it contains remnants of bronze age barrows and a hill fort (Bathampton Camp). The plateau, formed from oolitic limestone, is now a wildflower-rich grassland, falling away to a steep wooded valley with views across the River Avon to Solsbury Hill.
The footpaths around and across it make it easy to navigate, and its edge forms part of the National Trust’s Skyline walk. In the early summer look out for pyramidal and common spotted orchids.
