Notes

A bivallate sub-square enclosure of probable Iron Age date appearing as a cropmark on rising land at Flodden Edge. It is defined by twin ditches, spaced c. 10-15m apart. The outer of these encloses an area of c. 80-85m square. Both ditches bow out on the eastern side where there is also an entrance placed off centre to the south. Within the interior of the enclosure are several hut circles. On the eastern side of the enclosure is a trapezoidal annex defined by a single ditch which is markedly narrower than either of the ditches of the main enclosure. The annex ditch joins the main enclosure at its north-west corner and again just south of the entrance. Its maximum dimensions are c. 70m north-south by c. 50m east-west.
