Notes

A sub-rectangular earthwork 100 metres east to west and 70 metres north to south internally, covering an area of approximately 0.7ha. It is univallate enclosed by an earth and stone bank up to 2.3 metres high on the uphill, northern, side and 13 metres wide. On the southern side the bank is up to 1.8 metres high and 6.5 metres wide. The ditch surrounding the bank mirrors the bank construction being up to 9 metres wide and 1.8 metres deep on its north side. In places the remains of a field bank occur on the lip of the ditch. The original entrance is probably that on the west. The interior has been ploughed in modern times cutting back the banks in places, while the southern side is now on the edge of a working quarry. The general shape, construction and position of the earthwork indicates an Iron Age/Romano British 'round' type settlement. Surveyed at 1:2500 on AM. (3-4) Round at Hardbury
