The Iron Age hillfort of Blackbury Camp is in Devon. It is approximately 200 m by 100 m, and the ramparts stand up to 3 m high. Excavations at the site revealed a supply of slingstones used to defend the settlement.

Blackbury Camp is in State Guardianship. It is one of several hillforts in the care of English Heritage.
