"Small univallate hillfort I.A. Bank and outer ditch with 2 possible entrances."
Hampshire Treasures.
A curiosity or a disaster?
In this very affluent suburb of Southampton an Iron Age hill fort has been converted into a sort of roundabout of detached houses. When was this built upon? None of the houses look much earlier than the 1960s.
The original bank can only be seen in the E. quadrant where it is followed by the road.
The nearby Castle Hill earthwork to the W. was probably a cattle enclosure.
Disabled: Drive-by only for all.
