Pawston Hill - Iron Age Hillfort

The remains of an Iron Age hillfort are located on Pawston Hill, located to the south-west of the hamlet of Pawston and just to the north-west of Pawston Lake in Northumberland. The remains of the settlement show it to be an enclosure of approximately 85m by 75m, within three ramparts and two ditches. The inner and middle ramparts are separated by a ditch.
