Welcome ! This is a blog for people who want to be a friend of Wincobank Hill, for those who are fascinated, curious or concerned about the unique hill fort set high above Sheffield's Don Valley, encircled by ancient woodland that conceals the mysteries of history.

Who was here and why? Did they live, work or keep watch here? What part did this place play in the politics of an emerging nation? Was this the cradle of the British metal industry? And where was the water?

So many people are beginning to retell their stories, ask good questions and make suggestions that it's time to share what is happening ....

The Hillfort is ready and waiting

Wincobank Hillfort is ready and waiting for the thousands of visitors who will come to see the world's greatest cycle race as the riders toil up the twisting defensive approach of Jenkin Road and fly down Newman Road.  The ghosts on the timeless vantage point have seen much, but never so much fuss since the Romans were here.

Come and see for yourself, before the crowds come. Join us for our community festival on Saturday 5th July and on the Sunday for the great spectacle itself.
