Green Castle



It's interesting that Green Castle is also known locally as 'Cup and Saucer Camp' When considering that 'Cups and Saucers' is a colloquial term used in 19thC Northumberland for cup and ring marks, and that a marked stone was found in the ramparts of this site, it's possible that the local name refers not to the shape of the earthworks, but to rock art.
