A massive stone-walled, sub-oval enclosure, about 400m north-west to south-east by 100-360m, occupying an isolated hilltop. It is enclosed by the tumbled ruins of a massive drystone wall with elaborately inturned entrances. On all but the north-west side the enclosure rests on precipitous craggy slopes and here further works extend the enclosed area by some 200m.
The site was roughly excavation in 1905 (Gardner 1910) produced a fragment of Roman pottery. In 1978 142 Roman coins were found close by the fort. These are considered to have formed two third/fourth century hoards (Brewer 1980).
