To reach this ancient fort, we had to negotiate barbed wire fences, bogs and scrubby willow. I would never have made the detour to see this 'landmark' as it wasn't particularly recognisable in the vast moorland we were traversing. However, this fort was our main destination for today's geographing trip as it seemed an interesting feature to mark this gridsquare.
