Site Description NAR: SS48NE10

Norton Camp.
The earthwork is little changed since 1970 when it was planned by OS.
Its location on a promontory seems diagnostic though it is not included as an Iron Age hillfort site in the Inventory. A possible platform on the N side of the interior has been taken to imply a homestead function for the site and therefore a possible medieval date. (Glamorgan, vol III, Pt.ii)
