The Kettles



The ramparts and ditches are still quite well defined, it seems as though there are at least two distinct sections to the fort. The bracken was quite rampant, but there were what were probably hut circles visible in places.

You can scramble up the SW side from the Kings Chair, though the route from the northern side is much easier, the path is nice and easy to follow from Waud House.

Presumably built to guard the ravine running between Kenterdale Hill and the Horsden, the Kettles now seems to hold the pine plantation of Kenterdale hill at bay, which lurks threateningly to the west, looking like a coniferous shieldwall, possibly ready to charge down at any second.
