Lambert's Castle

Lambert's Castle and the nearby Coney's Castle are iron-age hill forts of different characters but both are well worth visiting. They are less than a mile apart. The car park for Lambert's Castle is at map reference SY 366 988.

Lambert's Castle has a large central grassy area and the slopes to north and east are covered with ancient woodland which has some interesting trees and plants. It is a SSSI of geological interest, owned by the National Trust. It also has interesting wild flowers. We visted in June 2016 with our two cats and dog and again in June 2019 with just our dog. Photos are from both dates.

Just down the hill to the northeast is the Bottle Inn, Marshwood which has a page on Wikipedia and is host to Dorset's annual nettle-eating comopetition.
