Mentioned by Craig Weatherhill, in “Cornovia: Ancient Sites of Cornwall & Scilly” (Cornwall Books - 1985, revised 1997 & 2000) – “The neck of this prominent headland displays two Iron Age ramparts with an intermediate ditch. The outer bank, best preserved on the northern side of the headlands, is 1.1m high. The inner is more massive, reaching a height of 2.7m, and is revetted with stone. A simple central entrance pierces both defences. No occupation sites have yet been noted.” pure joy Posted by pure joy
