Item image
Situated on a fairly level landscape. This feature is depicted as a D-shaped area (dims c. 50m NW-SE; c. 45m NE-SW) backing onto a NW-SE roadway at SW on the 1836 edition of the OS 6-inch map where it is described as a ‘Fort’. It is depicted as having a D-shaped pit or quarry (dims c. 35m NW-SE; c. 25m NE-SW) in the centre that is open to the road. It had been completely quarried away by 1969 (SMR file).
