Fort, Jackschairs

This is a curvilinear earthwork, in a better state of preservation than Christison (1900, 107) allows but very difficult to plan owing to the fact that it is encumbered by trees. The defences are best preserved on the E., where four ramparts, separated by ditches, are visible. The ramparts are reduced to terraces, but these are well marked and are traceable at various points round the rest of the circuit.
