It is recognised as being a Roman Camp. Being near Brunswark hill (one of the principal Roman Camps in the County) it may have been used by the Romans as a watch, or exploratory post for Such posts were usual in that time but it is doubtful that they Constructed the round Camp. It is either Danish or British which is yet a mystery. Moll's Castle is the old original name, and the correct name.
