Cholesbury Camp

About Cholesbury Camp

Cholesbury Camp is a Scheduled Monument and is regarded as one of the most visually impressive prehistoric settlements of the Chilterns. Though beech trees now grow across much of the site it is easy to envisage the multiple ramparts and central plateau that once made up this important settlement.

Although the purpose of Cholesbury Camp is not fully understood it formed part of a wider distribution of hillfort sites established across the Chiltern Hills in the late Bronze and Iron Ages. The Chiltern Society aims to conserve Cholesbury Camp to help further an appreciation and understanding of such sites within the Chilterns landscape.
