Ancient Sites in Bedfordshire

Prehistoric sites are few and far between in Bedfordshire. One of the few sites worth visiting is Sharpenhoe Clappers, near Luton. This Iron Age hill fort was built on a northern promontory of the Chiltern Hills, strategically overlooking the flat plains beneath.

The hill rises to 525 feet, providing excellent views, and is fringed by Clappers Wood. Trails lead through the wood, and wildflowers abound in summer.
Location
: North of Luton, just off the A6

The Dunstable Downs are home to at least six Neolithic burial mounds. Near Hexton is Wayting Hill, a round barrow that is said to be home to a sleeping warrior.
