Cadbury castle, the reputed site of the Arthurian Camelot

Cadbury castle, the reputed site of the Arthurian Camelot

The British entrenched camp of Cadbury Castle, thirty acres in area, about two miles east of Sparkford, Somerset, contests with Camelford the honour of being the Arthurian Camelot. A mound in the middle is known as "King Arthur's Palace," and the photograph shows the view from the palace looking south over the inner ring of fortification, which is faced with wrought masonry. There is a strong folk-memory connecting Arthur with this place, where it is said he rides with his gallant knights in the moonlight.
