Anstiebury Hillfort



" 1 mile NE of Leith Hill. An Iron Age fort, Oval in plan, enclosing 11 1/2 acres. To the NE and NW the defences are triple banks with double ditches and there are signs of a third ditch to the NE. An entrance at the NNE is probably original. A date of construction between C2 and the C1 Bc may be guessed- the site awaits proper excavation. Holmbury Camp is near by....."
