View from the top of the Ancient Bank
While the bank provides a significant obstacle when approached from the outside this picture shows that the top of the bank is level with the land inside the old Iron Age Camp. This is because the outline of the earthwork has been fitted into the natural contours of the hill helping to minimise the amount of material to be moved to create the fortifications.
