Details Remains of a promontory fort, consisting of an earthen rampart with a ditch, 3m wide, on either side. The bank is c.6.0m wide by c.1.5m high. A causeway, 5m wide, leads through the rampart and ditches near the east end of rampart. Around 90m to the southwest, at the edge of a cultivated field, is second rampart c.45m in length, and the possible remains of two ditches, one using a natural gully, the other which has silted up due to ploughing. There are slight indications of a further ditch 0.2m deep discernible immediately to the northwest of and parallel to the inner rampart. A topographic survey of the site was carried out in 2006.
