The Iron Age


Promontory Fort, Kemp's Walk

Iron Age

A Late Prehistoric promontory fort, which measures 83m by 44.5m. The neck of the promontory was cut off by multiple earthworks comprising three ramparts and two ditches to the north-west of the entrance, and two ramparts with a medial ditch to the south; the eastern flank may have been protected by the continuation of the twin ramparts but all trace has been removed by a modern pathway which leads from the entrance to the tip of the promontory.
