This fort reveals a sequence of different structures, some well preserved. The earliest are a heavy stone wall encircling the summit of the hill, c.700' by 250' and a wall which takes in all the SW foot of the hill to enclose an area which measures 1000' NE-SW by 550' transversely, including that already described but it is not known which is the earlier of the two. The contours of the hill suggest the former is more likely, but there is no real evidence either way.
The latest structure in the citadel or defensive enclosure occupying the summit, measuring 170' by 100' within a 12' thick wall which may be contemporary with the numbers of hut circles within and overlying the fort walls locally associated with late Roman times.
