North ramparts of Camp Knowe hillfort beneath Clennell Hill
North ramparts of Camp Knowe hillfort beneath Clennell Hill
Remains of an Iron Age univallate hillfort are situated, at approx, 250m above sea-level, upon the highest part of a south-west projecting spur of Clennell Hill, from which it is separated by a saddle. The site is naturally defended upon the north-west side by precipitous slopes which fall to the valley of the River Alwin. It overlooks falling slopes to the east and south and is overlooked by Clennell Hill beyond the saddle from the north-east. Original entrances lie in the S and SE sides of the fort. A low bank runs from both entrances towards the centre of the site, where the stone foundations of up to three circular houses 7m in diameter are visible, all with entrances in their SE sides.
