Ingram Hill Camp (Ingram)
A circular enclosure at this site is the remains of an Iron Age and Roman farmstead. It contains the remains of several small rectangular houses. Excavations in the mid 20th century found traces of a first century BC palisade followed by a walled enclosure. There was then an early medieval settlement at the site, using the rectangular buildings. This site is a Scheduled Monument.
