Castle Hill camp

  • Description

    "Small multivallate hillforts are defined as fortified enclosures of varying shape, generally between 1 and 5ha in size and located on hilltops. They are defined by boundaries consisting of two or more lines of closely set earthworks spaced at intervals of up to 15m....The monument includes a multivallate hillfort of Iron Age date and the remains of a Romano-British settlement, situated on the summit of Castle Hill. The monument occupies a prominent location at 290m OD with steep natural slopes on its south west side and more gradual slopes on its remaining sides. The hillfort is visible as a sub-circular enclosure, which encloses an area of about 0.4ha. within three concentric banks and ditches, except for the south west side where the outer and middle ramparts have been amalgamated due to the steepness of the natural slope....."
