Iron-Age Promontory Fort

This fort is protected by steep slopes to the north, south and east, while 5 mounds of earth, up to 5m high, form a discontinuous rampart on the west, cutting off the promontory. There is a ditch on the south-west and an entrance to the north-west. The defenses are evidently unfinished.
