Situated in a low-lying landscape and in full view of Bolton House, c. 250m to the W. This feature is not depicted on any OS 6-inch map but is visible on aerial photographs (GSIAP: N 261, 262) but not on later series. It is a slightly raised grass-covered area (diam. 30m N-S; 27.5m E-W) defined by a low scarp (H 0.4-0.5m). There are traces of a fosse (Wth of base 2.2m; ext. D 0.4m) and outer bank (Wth of base 3m; ext. H 0.2m) SW-W. An original entrance is not identified.
The above description is derived from the published 'Archaeological Inventory of County Meath' (Dublin: Stationery Office, 1987). In certain instances the entries have been revised and updated in the light of recent research.
