Flodden Camp (Ford)
Two ramparts enclose a circular area which may have once contained an Iron Age settlement. The west side, though virtually ploughed out, is still discernible, and traces of an entrance exist in the north-west. This ploughed out hillfort at Flodden could possibly have begun life as a henge and was then adapted to create this defensive settlement. The site is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
