Broomhillbank Hill fort
This is looking east from between the 'walls' of this hill fort. The extent of the fort is clearly seen on the ground, and even better from the air, as in the archeological notes of the site, which say, "This fort, splendidly situated on the summit of Broomhill Bank Hill, commands extensive prospects in all directions and is characteristic of many in the district. Its oval interior measures 190 ft (57.9m) by 170 ft (51.8m) within defences consisting of a rampart on either side of a broad ditch. There are two entrances." LinkExternal link
