A near circular univallate camp approximately 90m by 80m first recorded by McLauchlan (b1). The OS found an extremely well preserved, near circular univallate defended enclosure, situated on Lower Helland Down, a spur south of the River Camel (b2). It enclosed approx 1 hectare and has a simple entrance on the east side. A 25m outwork extends from the south-east side to protect the entrance (h1). The enclosure is visible on air photos (p1) and was recorded as part of the NMP.
