Visited 15.3.2009 as a precursor to a walk to the hugely impressive Painswick Beacon hillfort.

A triangular enclosure in a triangular piece of woodland, close to the busy A46 but far enough away for the noise to be left behind. Very overgrown even in spring. The enclosing banks are quite well defined though, under their covering of brambles and ivy.

No-one seems sure of the date, but its proximity to the Iron Age camp at High Brotheridge may be significant.
