An interesting location with good views but it's puzzling that the rampart remains do not form a circle. Perhaps the slope was adequate protection to the west. The block is as left by the previous visitors and is easy to find at the north end of the rampart.

AKA Horton Camp, an Iron Age Hill Fort. A mystery why OS gave it a different name. Short walk across from minor road. Block partially unclovered so an easy spot. Dug it out and left uncovered. Rod-style rivet in concrete on top of earthworks. NT land.

A few minutes with the poking stick and I was able to feel the block beneath the surface. Block buried beneath grass and soil at a depth of at least an inch. Simple metal rod-type 'bolt'. Great views over the South Gloucestershire countryside. Left block mainly uncovered. Further details and photos to follow...
