|Description ||One of a number of monuments called Castle Ring; this one near Rorrington just north west of Stapeley Hill.|
Just one ring surrounds this hilltop, with glorious views. Access is not obvious, so follow the route on the map, and when going through the wood, mind your footing. Tripping hazards abound.
A lovely remote place. Even though, while I was here on midsummer eve, a man on a quad bike came riding on a track to the south. If I recall correct, he was the brother of the landowner. We discussed the beauty of the place, and similar monuments. He also mentioned that they intended to look after the site, having only moved into the area for a year or so.
The rampart emerges bottom left to centre, and arcs around to the right. Corndon Hill visible to the far rear, and Stapeley Hill to the left. Panoramic views into Powys (Montgomeryshire) to the far right.
