Castle Ring (Harthill)



Always go and find someone from the farm before visiting....

Tiny hillfort (because of it's size it is thought to be more of a refuge) enclosing only 3 quarters of an acre. Good bank, ditch and counterscarp. A small section is missing in the SE. Rooke described an entrance visible in the SE in the 18th Century, but there are no traces today.

If you follow the 'Limestone Way' around the farm. There looks to be the remains of what might've been an outer bank. Over 2m high in places.
