Tor Dike is a 2km linear earthwork, consisting of a ditch cut into the limestone, and an earth and stone rampart. According to the SMR there are Iron Age type enclosures and hut circles abutting the rampart. Couldn't spot them myself, but you can't really miss the ditch and banks. Would have been quite defensible if it wasn't for the fact that you could just walk round the western end. sam Posted by sam
