Site Description

A roughly bean-shaped enclosure, c.270m N-S by 140m, on the summit of an isolated hill, is defined by a bank and ditch, generally reduced to scarps, counterscarped in places. At the S of the site is marked by crags.
A single possible roundhouse site within may be associated with the construction of either the modern reservoir or ruined park building (see Nprn265727), at the S end.
