Iron Age univallate cliff-edge fort, measuring 64 metres north-south and east-west. It is situated upon a northeast wooded slope at the edge of south-facing limestone cliffs above the River Teme. Field investigations carried out in 1972 found that on the west side, the rampart was 12 metres wide and up to 2 metres high, the ditch 10 metres wide, and between 1-2 metres deep. The rampart on the east side was between 7-10 metres wide and 1 metre high. The scarping on the south side was 6 metres wide and 4 metres high. The original entrance was at the north end.
