Reached by a road running northwest from the beacon and then taking a path across a field on the left. Keep to hedge to far end and go over stile...the fort is infront of you.
A large ditch and banks seperates field from a flat area that then drops away into the valley. This is an unusual site and thought to be Iron Age in date. It is in a great setting and would be easy to protect from all sides.
Mentioned by Craig Weatherhill, in "Cornovia: Ancient Sites of Cornwall & Scilly" (Cornwall Books - 1985, revised 1997 & 2000) as "curiously positioned on the side of a steep valley which has been cut and filled artificially to accommodate it. The central enclosure measures 55m by 45m internally, and has a south-facing entrance. The uphill side of the enclosure is protected by a bank 2,.0m high, with an outer ditch 2.5m deep. The ploughed remains of two outworks, one topped by a modern wall, lie beyond. The west side of the onclosure, formed by fill, falls away as a scarp at least 8m high. No occupation sites are visible. Locally called the Ringaround".
