Earthworks of a small, strongly fortified, enclosure. Probably an undocumented castle site.
natural hillock has been scarped to form a pear-shaped enclosure, 60m north-east to south-west by 40m. This is encircled by a ditch and counterscarp bank. It is approached by a 50m long ramp from the direction of the village to the north-east.
