Carrock Fell


Carrock Fell (Hillfort) by The Eternal This is a view of the south wall of Carrock Fell hillfort, looking SW. The wall is quite substantial at this point, being 4 to 5 feet high, and a good 20 feet thick. Gateways are at he N, S, E and W. This part of the wall appears to be in its original form, except for a reduction in height. There appears to be signs of a ditch on both sides, much silted in, which is understandable due to the harsh weather. Perhaps some of the stones were excavated from this ditch, but most could have been taken from the summit rocks.
