Warham Camp is an Iron Age circular hill fort in Norfolk, England.

The ramparts remain after more than two thousand years.

The fort is near the River Stiffkey,[1] south of the village of Warham. Warham Camp is circular, has a diameter of 212 metres with a 3-metre-high double bank and ditch.[2] It dates to the last few centuries before the Roman invasion of Britain,[3] with evidence of post-occupation activity. The University of East Anglia has described it as the best-preserved hill fort in Norfolk.[4]
