Large irregular enclosure (maximum dimension c.170m) defined by what appears to be a single ditch.  No entrance visible.  The site is located on the edge of the high ridge south of Palterton and overlooks the lower ground to the west.  There is a natural spring 200m. to the west, as the ground slopes down from the enclosure to the (river) Doe Lea.
