Kirkhaugh

Kirkhaugh
This mound is 22ft. in diam. and about 3ft high. It has been built upon a natural knoll which makes the barrow look larger than it is. Excavation showed that the mound has an earthy core with a rubble capping.

Maiden Castle Fort Pooley Bridge

Maiden Castle Fort Pooley Bridge
A superbly circular "fort", built on the side of the hill, which seems to be a Brigantian fashion (see below). This is built with two rampart walls and a very narrow ditch between - 1-2m.

Troutback Roman Camps

Troutback Roman Camps
At Troutbeck are three Roman marching camps and a small fort. This could be either a training camp or signs of three campaigns and a later fort.

Dunmallard Hill Fort

Dunmallard Hill Fort
Dunmallard Hill, shrouded in trees, hides a true hill-fort. It uses the steep slopes of the hill to good effect, adding to the defence with a deep ditch and rampart within.
