Iron-Age Hillfort

Flat-topped hill protected by earthworks across a neck of high ground to SW, consisting of a low bank and ditch 9m wide, with two more outlying cross-dykes. The area abounds in iron-age field-systems, ancient trackways and round barrows. At Little Butser (SU:719207) nearby, is an experimental Iron Age farmstead.
