Yeavering Bell Hillfort
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Some suggestion has been made that Yeavering Bell was a 'sacred mountain' for the Iron Age inhabitants of the area; a site of religious importance. The site was probably occupied into the Roman period.
Ascending the Bell does require some effort; the path follows a slope which can be steep, though not terribly difficult for anyone of reasonable fitness. Your reward for the effort ascending is a superb view over the surrounding area.
