Iron-Age Contour Hillfort

An ovoid fort protected by a bank, ditch and counterscarp bank with particularly strong defences on the south-east and inturned entrances to the east and west. There are a number of bowl barrows inside the fort and others around the entrances. The fort commands superb views, and on clear days the Isle of Wight can be seen in the south.
