Description

This is the summit of Bulbarrow Hill, which is part of the Dorset 3 Peaks Hiking Challenge.

The hill is easily accessible and has a radio mast at the top. This is where the summit is.

Thousands of years ago, there was an Iron Age hill fort, but little remains now. It’s called Rawlsbury Camp.

Further down the hill is the remains of RAF Bulbarrow Hill.

There’s not necessarily much hiking required as there’s a road that runs up the hill.

Our Review

Here’s a video of Rawlsbury Camp on Bulbarrow Hill.

 

Well here’s not something you see every day.  A-10s practising and attack on Bulbarrow Hill!

This would be quite a sight if you ware bagging the summit and this happened.
