Site Description A sub-rectangular enclosure, about 153m from north-west to south-east by 145-154m, defined by a ploughed-down bank and traces of a ditch. There are earthen 'bastions' at the angles as well as midway on the north-west and south-eastern faces. It is thought to be a seventeenth century fort, but an assemblage of Roman material has also been reported from the site.

The earthworks of the fort can be seen to cut across what appears to be a ditched rectangular enclosure on the south-east (NPRN 402396).
