VOLEY CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

An enclosed univallate hillslope enclosure of late Iron Age or early Romano British date with an outwork is visible as a series of substantial earthworks, both at ground level and on aerial photographs. Situated on an east-facing slope on the south-eastern side of Heale Down, the bank is best preserved in the northern area where it measures 1.7m high externally and 0.2m internally. The ditch is best preserved on the southern side measuring 4m wide and 0.6m deep. It is more likely to represent a defended farmstead, rather than a fort.
