Eston Nab



"On the summit of this promontory , which spreads out to the forthwards into an extensive plain, there is an ancient encampment, conjectured to be of Saxon origin, consisting of a double circle of rough loose stones: the inner rampart or entrenchment being 150 paces in cirmcuference; and the whole still perfect except on the north, where a small portion of the circle is cut off by the abrutness of the rock,which on that side is nearly perpendicular. This was probably constructed by the Saxons about the year 492 when they were overthrown by the Britons at the battle of Badon-Hill"
