Bodbury Ring



Pastscape information:

IA promontory earthwork on Bodbury Hill. It measures, overall, 100.0m NE-SW by 95.0m transversely and is pear-shaped in plan. The NE-facing rampart is 6.0 to 10.0m wide and up to 1.7m high internally. It rises 3.5m above an outer ditch which is 8.0m wide and up to 1.3m deep. At the eastern end are remains of a simple entrance. The fort is elsewhere bounded by a steep scarping of the natural slopes, which is 7.0m in width and 3.0 to 3.5m in height. Beyond the narrow berm the slopes fall away precipitously.
