Defended settlement south of West Brizlee (Denwick)
An Iron Age defended settlement lies on a north-west facing slope. It comprises a roughly circular enclosure measuring 40m by 44m across. A ditch and substantial rampart of earth and stone surrounds the settlement and stands up to 1.8m high. The entrance lies in the south-east side. The remains of a possible round house were exposed in the later 20th century in a hollow probably created by a fallen tree. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
