KIMSBURY CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

Kimsbury Castle, a sub-triangular multivallate Iron Age hillfort, is visible as earthworks on historic aerial photographs and remote sensing data. Located on Painswick Hill, the monument has three earthwork banks and ditches on its NNW-SSE and SW-NE sides, with its third WSW-ENE side being a steep scarp slope with no visible bank defences. Extensive medieval and/or post-medieval quarrying has taken place within the internal enclosure and a modern footpath cuts through the defensive banks on the SW facing side. The hillfort is visible on aerial photographs taken in 2014.
