This Iron Age Round is situated on the northeast side of Hawks Tor, near the village of North Hill. Not easy to get at, it is also on private land. A footpath runs above and below it, the one running below giving best access.
At first I thought I was just in another field untill i noticed the size of the banks. These run round about two thirds of the round and have a deep ditch outside them. On top grow ancient oaks. The area above ythe round is gradually being taken over by rhododrendrons whilst below it the valley is of ancient woodland.
I have not been able to find out too much about this site, and would welcome any other info.
