View of the ramparts from inside the site
Blackbury Camp is an Iron Age hill fort situated in Southleigh, Devon, England. The ramparts are still relatively high, showing an unusual entrance feature. The fort occupies the end of a large ridge at some 185 metres (607 ft) above sea level. It was defended by a single bank and ditch, forming a roughly D-shaped enclosure. A triangular barbican was added to the south but was never completed. The fort was probably occupied in the 2nd and 1st centuries BC by a cattle-farming community.
