Park at the junction of the two minor roads just S of the site. Walk N to a small quarry on the E of the road. Head E and (sadly) follow the vehicle tracks which run through the centre of the site.

A low stony bank 2.1 to 2.4m wide surrounds an area 16m diameter enclosing an eccentrically placed stony mound of 4.3m diameter.

On the SE arc of the bank are visible two shallow grooves about 0.7m apart. They may have supported timber uprights and, although no longer visible, could have continued around the entire bank.
