An Iron Age multivallate hillfort is visible as an earthwork on air photographs. The hillfort is defensively situated at 213 metres OD on a hill with steep slopes to the west and north, but sloping more gently to the east and south. It consists of two contemporary earthwork ramparts and one possibly later outer enclosure bank. The inner-most rampart is 'D' shaped and encloses an area 0.18ha. It is 4 metres wide. There are potential entrances on the north-west and north-east sides (being continuous through each rampart). The second rampart is of similar shape to the first but measures 94.8 metres by 65 metres (0.30ha), and 4 metres wide. The outermost enclosure maintains an entrance in its north-west corner and lies on the very top of the hill slope. It is rectilinear and orientated south-west/north-east. It measures at least 184 metres by 109 metres, and is 2.5 metres wide. The east side is not completely visible.
