The nearest postcode is an aid to location, and does not necessarily reflect the actual address of the monument. Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.


An Iron Age/Roman hillfort is visible as an earthwork on air photographs. The enclosure is irregular in plan, with only the east and south defences visible. The hillfort is still extant on the latest 1999 Ordnance Survey vertical photography. Earthwork remains of an Iron Age bivallate hillfort or enclosed settlement.
