Hillsborough Promontory Hillfort

A headland enclosed by two parallel ramparts which are characteristically Iron Age, overlooking Illfracombe and the North Devon Coast. The site was later used in the medieval/ post-medieval periods for livestock grazing, and was enjoyed as pleasure ground during the Victorian period, before it took a role in the Second World War given the exceptional views of the coast. This document looks at the later prehistoric use of the site.
