Danebury Hill Fort (or Ring) is an Iron Age Hill Fort, north-west of Stockbridge. Managed by Hampshire County Council, it is a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The name is derived from the Old English for “hillcamp”. It was built 2,500 years ago and was extensively archaeologically excavated between 1969 and 1988. Many iron and bronze artefacts and 180,000 pieces of pottery were discovered. A selection can be seen at the Museum of the Iron Age in Andover. The Hill Fort was abandoned about A.D. 43. From the top, there are extensive views across the chalk downland to pre-historic burial grounds, as well as Middle Wallop Airfield.
