Lower Exbury

Promontory Fort


A rare example of a fort on a river estuary, in a great position where the River Beaulieu kinks sharply. Officially the period is unknown but it is suspected to be Iron Age. The excellent ‘Hampshire Treasures’ resource gives the following information – “Defended on the west by the River Beaulieu and on east by a bank and outer ditch. O.S.A. No. SZ49 NW3. Ref: Ancient Earthworks in the New Forest, 1917, (Sumner), p.119.” pure joy Posted by pure joy
