Cratcliff Rocks (Defended Settlements and Cave)



Recently discovered hillfort. Rock strewned interior, protected by steep drops to the east and south. A boulder wall to the North and West.

The boulder wall uses earthfast boulders in its construction and there are only small sections left.....non of these are overly impressive and its a fair old search to find the sections that remain.

Definitely worth checking out......
John Barnatt has suggested that this hillfort is in fact a 'causewayed enclosure' or 'tor enclosure' like Gardoms Edge or Carl Wark.
