Norton Fitzwarren: Bronze Age enclosure, Iron Age hill fort
Standing above the churchyard, the site was excavated in 1908 and again from 1968 to 1971. Evidence suggests Mesolithic and Neolithic activity here. An early Bronze Age enclosure dates from about 2000 BC; in the Iron Age this was superseded by a new rampart and ditch, creating an enclosed area of 5.2 hectares or 13 acres. The interior is now cultivated. Taunton Deane Borough Council has created a nature trail around the perimeter.
