MONUMENT NO. 67150

DESCRIPTION + /

A Promontory fort on Burton Point, comprising a single rampart remaining up to 5m high with external ditch, enclosing a triangular tip of the promontory. Both ends of the defence have been truncated by erosion and quarrying. Although apparantly an Iron Age promontory fort, the small size and coastal location of the site seems more akin to cliff forts of Wales and the Isle of Man. Some of these were Scandinavian farmsteads although the type dates from the Iron Age to early Medieval.
