Take giant steps to see anarchy in Rampton with free guided walk

CAMBRIDGESHIRE Archaeology will be holding a guided walk at Giants Hill, Rampton on Wednesday August 15 from 7pm.

Giants Hill is the site of an anarchy castle and the remains of a medieval village are still visible beneath the pasture. It has an important history and today is also a haven for local wildlife.

Stephen Macaulay from Oxford Archaeology East said: “Giants Hill is a one of the Counties most important and interesting medieval sites, come along on Wednesday to find out for yourself.”

The walk will start at 7pm on Wednesday, August 15, at the monument entrance on the Rampton – Cottenham Road. The walk is free and will last approximately one hour. There is no need to book in advance and most of the site is accessible for people with restricted mobility. Please note - do not park on the road by the site but in the village or on the site itself. It is a County Farms Pocket park and is open to the public throughout the year.

This guided walk is just one in a series of guided walks organised by Cambridgeshire Archaeology throughout the county. For further details on this or any other guided walks on the ancient monuments please contact Cambridgeshire Archaeology 01223-728564.
