Iron-Age Hillfort

This small circular fort was protected by a double bank and deep median ditch which enclosed an area of about 3 acres (c.1.2ha). The defences of this fort are nowadays tree-covered, and the modern mausoleum which cuts into the south-eastern part of the site is that of Sir Francis Dashwood, the founder of the notorious 'Hell Fire Club'.
