Nearest Postcode


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.


Iron Age coastal promontory fort cut off from the mainland by approximately 20 metres of bank 2.3 metres wide and 0.9 metres high and ditch 3 metres wide with a causewayed entrance near its northern end. Alternatively, it is suggested to be a defended landing point, as a flat expanse of rock near the waterline could have provided a suitable natural quay.
