Notes

Sub-rectangular earthwork enclosure with internal subdivisions, possibly building platforms, present on Rough Hill. Medieval or later pottery was recovered from under one of the banks in 1913. Field investigations in 1975 found it to measure 160 metres by 96 metres with internal sub-divisions. The bank was 0.9 metres high and the ditch 0.6 metres deep. Possible building platforms were identified in the north corner. RCHME aerial survey in 1995 has identified possible lynchets extending to the north and south of the enclosure, and a possible outer boundary bank to the south.
