Location of Peppercombe Castle in Devon

Peppercombe Castle is an Iron Age Hill fort situated on cliffs to the East of Bucks Mills in North Devon. The remains of the fort are hard to define from maps and it may well be that much of the site has been lost to coastal erosion, but it would seem to have been at around 80 m above sea level.[1]

It is on the South West Coast Path.
