Welcome to Wincobank Hill !
The prehistoric Wincobank HiIl Fort is a Scheduled Monument.
Surrounded by ancient woodland of oak, beech and birch,
it occupies a commanding position on the hilltop overlooking the
Valley in Sheffield, Yorkshire, England.
Nearby, runs the route of the Roman Ridge, an ancient earthwork the origins and purpose of which are still a mystery. Previously thought to be a Roman road, the ridge which runs from Sheffield to Mexborough is now thought by some to be an even earlier construction, possibly to mark ancient boundaries.
