Iron Age camp 540m ESE of Ilderton (Cheviotside)

A circular stone rampart stands on the north end of a high ridge of farmland. There was originally a double rampart, but the inner rampart is now almost ploughed out. Although these are the remains of an Iron Age or a Roman settlement, two Bronze Age pots have also been found here.
