|Small-medium hillfort with double ditch and bank structure.
Banks are low, ditches shallow, patches of bedrock protrude.
A number of hut circles are still visible.
Good views of Carr Hill rock art site to the NW, overlooks the confluence of the North and South Tyne to the SW.
Would suit Ottodini tribe looking to protect the upper Tyne from Brigantian incursion.
Ask at Laverick plantation Cottage for permission, as the rights of way which are still marked on some old maps as leading up to the fort from the trees, have been altered.
Poor access, requires climbing stiles.
