Iron-Age Contour Hillfort

This shield-shaped contour fort is defended by a single bank and ditch on the north-west and south-west, while on the eastern side where the entrance was sited and the approach less steep, the defences were doubled. The interior area of the fort is a modest 4 acres (c.1.6ha). The woods nearby are strewn with other earthworks which may date to the Iron Age.
