Ham Hill is a geological Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), Scheduled Ancient Monument, Iron Age hill fort, Roman site, Local Nature Reserve and country park, to the west of Yeovil in Somerset, England.The hill has given its name to the distinctive quarried hamstone and also to two nearby villages: Stoke-sub-Hamdon and Norton Sub Hamdon, whose names mean "under-Ham-hill" (where "Ham" is Old English for a small settlement). The Mendip Hills, Blackdown Hills, Quantock Hills and Dorset Downs are all visible from Ham Hill, especially from its war memorial. It is popular for picnicking, walking and mountain biking in the grassy hollows of the old quarry workings.The geology supports a wide range of fauna including mammals, birds, invertebrates, reptiles and amphibians living on lichens, fungi, ferns and flowering plants.

  • I had a great morning with three brilliant rangers they planted a tree for us and gave my husband and myself a really great couple of hours fun ,thankyou for your time and patience xx
  • Excellent for walking, dog owners welcome. Pub serves excellent food and drink Very popular with locals and visitos
  • Free and fantastic day out . The children fossil hunt, play football, climb hills, ride their bikes and the dog follows them. Lovely but very busy pub there too.
  • A brilliant place to walk your dogs. Parking is free and there are interesting winding walks with things to stumble upon. For those with active dogs (or children) there are some large fields to trek across. I believe that at some times during the year there are livestock in these fields and are therefore off limits to dogs for obvious reasons. After your walk you can pop into the Prince of Wales pub for a meal.
  • Great for long or short walks. Prince of Wales pub on top of hill well worth a visit.
