Bury Ditches Car Park

Bury Ditches Car Park

Lower Down, Clun, Shropshire, SY7 8BD

Bury Ditches car park is a Forestry Commission location offering walking access to the near Bury Ditches iron age hill fort. It’s a steep walk up to the top; however, the views of the starry skies above the Shropshire Hills AONB are well worth it!


Bury Ditches Car Park is a Go Stargazing Site. The location has been identified by the Go Stargazing team as a good location for stargazing based on local light pollution levels, distance from nearby towns and cities and offers a safe place to park.
