Tubby's Head

Cliff Fort


Pastscape description:

This is a small sloping promontory cut off from the mainland by about 20 metres of bank and ditch with a causewayed entrance near the Northern end. Defensively in a very poor position the "castle" is overlooked completely by the steeply sloping land to the East.

It is just possible that the bank and ditch protected a landing rather than enclosing a cliff castle as a flat expanse of rock near the waterline could perhaps have provided a suitable
natural quay.
