I went up to Danebury Hill fort today – although it’s really known as Danebury Ring to us. It’s a fantastic hill fort in Hampshire that overlooks fields and fields of countryside. The most interesting part about is that it’s 2500 years old.

The hill fort is the most extensively scrutinized in all of Europe. It belongs to the Iron Age which was around 700BC. The evidence found on the fort suggests it was occupied for 500 years.

Buddy absolutely loves it because he can run and run for miles if he wants to – he did that today and turned into a Greyhound. He also loved the horses, I think it was the first time he got to meet any – and he stared at them for ages with his tongue hanging out…
