Notes

The earthwork remains of a small multivallate hillfort of Late Iron Age date located on the summit of King John's Hill. Partial excavation has uncovered pottery fragments dating to c100 BC and two infilled storage pits. The same excavations revealed pottery and building remains of the 13th and 14th centuries, which may relate to a hunting lodge supposedly built on the hill by King John. Further evidence, including building materials and an oven, indicate post medieval occupation of the site. Scheduled.
