Situated on a fairly low NW-SE ridge. This is a circular grass and rush-covered area (diam. 36m N-S; 33m E-W) sloping down to the SE. It is defined by an earth and stone bank (Wth of base 3.5-6m; int. H 0.4m; ext. H 0.9-1.4m) and hedge ENE-W-N with some evidence of outer facing stones. There is no visible fosse and the entrance (Wth of base 2.5m) is at E.

In certain instances the entries have been revised and updated in the light of recent research. Revised by: Michael Moore Date of revision: 26 October 2018
