Pike House camp (Brinkburn and Hesleyhurst)

The camp, or enclosure, at Pike House dates to the Iron Age. It is roughly circular in plan and enclosed by two ramparts with an entrance through the east and north sides. The ramparts have been ploughed down and little remains of them today, but the ditch is more noticeable. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
