Outer rampart of Maiden Castle
Outer rampart of Maiden Castle
The outer of the double ring of ramparts of the iron age hill fort, Maiden Castle.

The National Trust sign on the left describes the fort: 'The area in front of you is Maiden Castle, a hill-fort of the iron age which has two ramparts, each with an external ditch, with a cliff forming the western edge of the settlement. There is a single entrance, with inturned defensive banks, into the interior. The ramparts were formed of stone and earth, held together with timber lacing. Scientific data suggests that the hill-fort was occupied around two thousand years ago.'
