Capler Viewpoint

Site Owner: Brockhampton Estate

This viewpoint has views to the west over the river Wye and the rolling Herefordshire countryside. On the riverside below Capler Hill is the remains of a small quarry where stone was extracted and taken by barge upstream to Hereford for the construction of the Cathedral. 

Behind this viewpoint the land rises up to the Iron Age Hillfort of Capler Camp. The camp was occupied from 500BC to approximately 200-300AD. Recent geophysical surveys discovered evidence of a round house, possibly with a stone floor and central fire pit.
