MONUMENT NO. 412384

DESCRIPTION + /

A medieval ringwork situated on the crest of a spur of Castle Hill, formerly believed to be a motte. The monument comprises a roughly circular central area surrounded by a series of defensive banks and ditches. A small mound and a rectangular enclosure overlie the defences on the north and west sides. Metal working slag found on the north eastern side of the site suggests that the area was subsequently used for small scale industrial activities, probably from the 13th century onwards.
