The Kettles



This hillfort views Humbleton hillfort to the north-west.

Beside The Kettles fort there is a rock outcrop called the King's Chair, which got it's name from a local legend that a Scottish king once sat here during a battle between the Scots and English in the valley below. There are no records of this battle... although there was one near Humbleton.

The valley beneath was a once-busy passageway including a spring called the Pin Well, which got it's name from the local tradition of visiting the well on Fair days, throwing in pins and making a wish.
