Ham Hill Country Park


The lovely 400 acre Ham Hill Country Park, just South of Martock, has one of the largest Iron Age hill forts in Europe, with large wild flower meadows, steeply sloping Iron-Age rampart, a deserted medieval village and historically managed native woodlands.

The monument on the edge of the escarpment offers excellent views of Martock, the Somerset levels, Exmoor and the Mendip Hills.

The hamstone of the buildings of Martock is quarried in nearby Ham Hill.
