Sitetype: IAf

An impressive hillfort in a spectacular setting. It has 3 banks and 2 ditches, with an inturned entrance on the SE and another on the NW, the easier approaches. There are over 500 depressions charted in the interior which were probably huts and storage pits. There is a henge monument nearby (SY:546946) with entrances aligned like the hillfort, to the NW and SE, and having a small round barrow at its centre.
