Visited 14.8.10.
Driving through the pretty little village of Tytherington I parked opposite 'Ruth's Close' Bungalow. Then it was over the field gate (carefully lifting my legs over the electric fence - I was wearing shorts!) and up into the trees. The remains of the ditch / bank were pretty well preserved - standing over head height in places. Very overgrown and not that easy to access.
I stood upon the Hillfort ramparts and watched the bumper to bumper cars along the nearby M5 -makes you think.

A mere hair's breadth from the M5, this fort has a single bank and ditch, damaged by quarrying.
