Barbury Castle is a scheduled Iron Age hill fort situated in Wiltshire, England. It is one of several such forts found along the ancient Ridgeway route. The site, which lies within the Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, has been managed as a country park by Swindon Borough Council since 1971. It is situated on Barbury Hill, a local vantage point, which, under ideal weather conditions, commands a view across to the Cotswolds and the River Severn. It has two deep defensive ditches and ramparts. The Old Ridgeway runs close by and the modern Ridgeway crosses through the castle. In the surrounding area are to be found round barrows, Celtic field systems and 18th-19th Century flint workings.

  • Kastelo Barbury estas ferepoka terfortikaĵo sur monteto en Wiltshire, Anglio, kvin mejlojn (ok kilometrojn) sude de Swindon. La unuaj loĝantoj okupis la lokon antaŭ ĉirkaŭ 2,500 jaroj. Ĝi estis loĝata dum la romia epoko, kaj arkeologaj esploroj eltrovis plurajn konstruaĵojn kiuj indikas aŭ vilaĝon aŭ armean garnizonon. En 556 Cynric, reĝo de Wessex, venkis keltojn ĉe Kastelo Banbury, kiu iĝis parto de Wessex. (eo)
