Grid reference: SU2179

This ancient fortification lies between Swindon and the Marlborough Downs and can be seen from the M4. From the M4, head south towards Marlborough. Just as you leave the village of Chiseldon turn left at SU193794 and park at SU218804. Follow the footpath south-west up to the castle and then explore the whole area. This area is good from July onwards for Redstarts, Wheatears and Yellow Wagtails but is best known locally as THE place to see Ring Ousels. Tree Pipits are often heard flying over and there is also a very healthy population of Yellowhammers, Linnets and a few Corn Buntings.
