Site Description

A sub-rectangular enclosure, c.388m NE-SW by 94-116m, set upon the gently sloping summit of a steep sided promontory ridge above a bend in the Wye valley. 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.
