7' or 8' while the counterscarp varies on these
sides from 4' to 6': elsewhere both sides are
lower. Except on the N. [North] where the foreground is
flat and wet there is an outer mound above
the counterscarp. The main entrance has
been in the NE [North East] angle 8' wide opening into a
circular hollow around which the ground
rises to a height of from 4' to 6'. There is a
break in the periphery towards the SE [South East]
but on the adjacent sides of the rampart much
material has been thrown up evidently from
the widening or formation of the gap the original
character of which is thus open to doubt. The
interior is not level & the rock which is near
the surface in many places outcrops.
