Dunmallard Hill Fort

← Cumbria

Site Details:

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.

The ramparts are up to 10m in height from the base of the ditch, which is still 2-3m deep in places. The rampart is apparently of dump construction.

The rampart is very variable in size, in someplaces it almost non existent.

Air view from multimap. Dunmallard Hill is in the upper centre.
