Small hillfort (about 0.5 acre) with irregular defences, south end protected by scarp and natural cliff. Overlooks the River Teme.

In "In The March and Borderland of Wales" (1905 Archibald Constable & Co), A.G. Bradley mentions that there are a couple of artificial passages cut into the limestone a little way downstream (near Downton Castle) known locally as "the Roman Caves".
