A scarped knoll, ditched to the north, interpreted as 'a rather abnormal medieval earthwork castle', or as an IA defended enclosure. Possible cropmarks of a roundhouse in the northern part of the enclosure support the later interpretation. (Coflein)

Gatehouse Comments

On spur of land, small for Iron Age Hillfort. Has no strategic value but could be a small manorial centre.
