An Iron Age fort or enclosed settlement is visible as an earthwork on air photographs. This feature is situated on a spur of land near Titlington Mount, with steep slopes to the south and more gentle slopes to the north and east. To the west, however, slopes rise to higher ground which overlooks the site. Roughly oval in shape it consists of a double rampart (a potential entrance into each being situated in the north-west quadrant). The south-east portion of the site is very denuded which may account for the idea that this was in-fact a single rampart enclosure with an adjoining annexe on the north-west side. The outer rampart measures 100m by 76m and is 1.7 metres wide. The inner rampart is 61.5 metres by 47.5 metres (enclosing an area 0.21ha), and again 1.7 meters wide. The two ramparts are joined together by a short section of bank (earthwork) which runs north east-south west.
