NS 8464 8000 to NS 8490 8000 Published course (OS 25 inch 1961) resurveyed. Wall, Ditch and Outer Mound are fairly well defined, although the sharp alignment angle can now only be deduced from the projected extant straights. Extant dimensions vary, but on the W the Rampart averages 1.5m high and the Ditch, 12m wide and 1.2m deep.
