Penycloddiau, Northop

At 26 hectares, this massive Iron Age Hill-fort, resting at 440 meters above see level, is one the largest and most breathtaking in Wales, but just one of a series of hill-forts in the Clwydian Range. The Offa’s Dyke Path crosses its peak, while the Clwydian Way skirts its western slopes. The Iron Age Hill-fort was originally build in 500 BC, but at the north end of the fort, you can see the site of a bronze age burial mound, which was rebuilt in 2010 on the site of the original cairn. Both historic and incredibly picturesque, worth a visit.
