BEACON CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

A univallate sub-circular earthwork enclosure is visible on aerial photographs and at ground level, constructed on a gentle slope to the north of and below the crest of the summit of South Down. As it does not lie on the summit it is assumed to be a pastoral settlement rather than a defensive one. The turf-covered earth and stone rampart is up to 6.7m wide in the south. There is no indication of internal occupation. It is most likely to date to the late Iron Age period.
