Coleridge Way

Bicknoller Hill & Trendle Ring Hillfort

Bicknoller Hill & Trendle Ring Hillfort

Bicknoller Hill has been an important place for local residents since prehistoric times. Stone Age flint scatters have been found on its slopes, and there are many cairns and bowl barrows from the Bronze Age, up to 4000 years ago.

To the south east as the Coleridge Way starts to head north is Trendle Ring, an Iron Age hillfort with a mystery. Although it is impressively sited above the valley, its position is not easily defended and its slopes too steep to enclose stock, leaving archaeologists wondering what its true purpose was.
