Dinedor sits close to the River Wye, about two and a half miles from Hereford.
Dinedor Hill is about four hundred feet high, and its summit could be described as an oblong piece of table land, some two hundred yards in diameter.
This summit is the site of a Roman camp, and may have been walked upon by Caractacus, the British hero, as well as the Roman invader, Ostorius.
The views from the camp embrace 360 degrees – looking to the North and down over Hereford, the view is stunning and includes the spire of the Cathedral as well as spires of other churches.
The hills around Kington, at Lyonshall and Eywood are visible, as well as the Titterstone Clee Hill near Ludlow.
Look around to the East, and lovely tree crowned knolls fill your vision until you reach the range of the Malvern Hills.
Closer than the Malverns are the hills near Ledbury and Marcle Ridge, then Fownhope and the tree crowned Woolhope Hills.
To the South, May Hill can be seen, near Gloucester, and to the West the Craig and Garway and the wonderful Monmouthshire Hills.
Wherever you look from Dinedor Hill, the views are remarkablly glorious.
