St CATHERINE’S HILL

St CATHERINE’S HILL

St Catherine’s Hill is a 220 foot (67m) high univallate Iron Age hillfort settled in c550-450BC, with defences constructed c250-200BC. It was abandoned c50BC, but there are traces of Roman use, and Norman /medieval chapel was constructed there and a 17thC mizmaze (turf maze cut into the chalk). These days, with stunning views over Winchester and the surrounding countryside, it is a 58 hectare flower-rich chalk grassland nature reserve, home to a variety of wild flowers and more than 25 species of butterfly, including the marbled white, chalkhill blue and brown argus.

St Catherine's Hill is managed by Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust.
