Castle Hill (Elsdon)

The remains of a sub-rectangular enclosure stand on the top of Castle Hill. It has been described as both an Iron Age feature and as a Roman period native enclosure. It has a rampart with an outer ditch, with traces of a second rampart on the north and south sides. The earthwork has been partly quarried, which makes a clear interpretation of the site difficult.
