SHOULSBURY CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

An unfinished rectangular hillslope earthwork thought to be of late prehistoric or early Roman date. The monument takes the form of an enclosure measuring 146m by 142m within an earth and stone bank c.8m wide and 1.5m high with an outer ditch. The entrance appears to have been at the centre of the western side accompanied by a causeway over the ditch. There may be a blocked entrance 35m north of the SE corner. A barrow (NMR UID 1050187) lies within the NE corner, probably the orignal "Shoul's Barrow" which gave its name to the common and the settlement.
