Site Description


A sub-rectangular enclosure is set upon the gently sloping summit of a steep-sided promontory ridge above a bend in the Wye valley. On plan it measures about 388m north-west by south-east by 94m-116m. Facing the neck of the ridge the enclosure is defined by double banks and ditches, elsewhere by a single bank, or ruined wall, above steep natural slopes. The site is located in woodland.
