The Lawley

We visited The Lawley on a balmy sunny November day, we walked in shirt sleeves to its summit and soaked in the views - the view from its green verdent slopes towards Caer Caradoc are amongst the finest I've ever had the pleasure to witness. The Lawley is a long ridge shaped hill of about 1240 feet situated to the North of the Caer Caradoc Hillfort. At first glance the hill appears to have no ancient earthworks of any note, however look closely enough and three distinctive ringed enclosures can be made out. The largest and clearest is located on the summit, another is located about 400 yards North, a bit lower on the ridge. And a third is slightly obscured by trees another 200 yards North and slightly lower down the ridge again. Their purpose is unclear and not much is known about them.
