Site Description


The Mount is a hilltop enclosure located on farmland. It consists of an embanked oval enclosure measuring about 80m north-west to south-east by 62m, showing traces of a ditch. Air photos indicate that the field in which it lies has undergone ploughing though the enclosure can still be seen.
