Kettles hill fort

  • Description

    "The Iron Age hill fort (alternatively called Maiden Castle or Greenside) occupies a ridge protected on three sides by steep slopes. The hill fort is divided into two sections by triple ramparts. The steep natural slopes have been topped by a single rampart of earth and stone. At the south-east end of the site is an additional rampart and a narrow opening which led down to the seat-like rock called the King’s Chair and to a spring below called the Kettle (also called the Cattle [or Pin Well]) " Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2010, and licensed for reuse under a Creative Commons Licence.
