The Castle Wall

This is about all that is left of Cadbury Castle. It is a hill with very steep sides that lead up to what was once a castle. Now it is a pasture. The defensive advantage of this place was obvious. It would have been a formidable fortress. You could see for miles in any direction and if any enemy made it to the base of the hill they would be faced with a quarter mile hike up a steep incline right to the outer walls. It makes sense that legend ties this site to the mythical Camelot. It would have been an awe inspiring center of power in its glory.
