A large enclosure with south-eastern entrance (ish, sorry, no compass). Approximately 30 yards across. There is a very evident rubble bank, but no inner ditch, all around and a central robbed mound. There is however a large stone in the mound. There is a large robbed mound next to the entrance.
There is a short steep climb up to this one from the road, and it is situated at the northern end of a small quarry.
It was far to foggy on this ocaision to explore further.

Old Maps


The old map of 1852 suggests that this is a "British Camp". I don't quite know what they mean by that!
