The Kettles univallate hillfort and enclosed settlement, 261m north west and 331m south west of King's Chair - List Entry

  • Description

    "The monument, which falls in two areas, includes a univallate hillfort of Iron Age date, situated on a promontory on the east slope of Kenterdale Hill and an enclosed settlement of Romano-British date, situated on the east slope of Earle Whin. The Kettles univallate hillfort, also known as Greenside Camp and Maiden Castle, has steep natural slopes to the south, east and north east with more gradual slopes in other directions. The enclosure is irregularly-shaped, reflecting the local topography, and is separated into two parts by triple ramparts..'."
